Our family helping your
Team sponsored by Caring Partners International; we visited eleven health facilities to lecture, observe, note needs of each facility and take gifts and supplies for each of the facilities we visited.
Cuba is beautiful. We began our work in Havana, working in a psychiatric hospital, Baptist nursing home, and a women’s and children’s hospital. Havana sits on a beautiful bay:
And we stayed at what was originally the Havana Hilton; unfortunately for the Hilton chain, it was expropriated by the communists within six months of its opening in 1959. The interior and exterior remind you of something built in 1959, don‘t they?
Everywhere is the classic picture of Che.
Here is our team with some Cuban friends as well.
Lots of 50's era cars...
Many people keep their cars indoors.
You can see evidences of the original beauty in the tile work and entrances.
And the supplies we took in to them seemed to be much appreciated.
Many pieces of equipment have been donated through Caring Partners International over the years.
As in other places, we lectured to students, clinicians, parents, and physicians.
We stayed in a beautiful tourist area the last three days just east of Havana on a peninsula - Valadera. Absolutely stunning.
Cuba was beautiful, our hosts were gracious, and we worked very hard. I hope to make this a yearly trip.
