    Story

    CNN Cuba

    I am raising funds to help the people in Cuba, who have been devastated by hurricane Irma and will be further hit by hurricane Jose.

    I am asking people tondonate what they can £2.50 is the cost of a coffee in a shop, why not miss one coffee and help these people in serious need.

    The people I am raising funds for have no money. They earn on average £20 a month and live on ration packs. When Irma has hit them they have had nowhere to run to. These people have had to find the safest place to be and hope that it is safe enough for them and their young children. I have had many facebook messages to my friends there, who by watching news reports are in darkness, with the winds destroying their lives.

    I want to help these people rebuild their lives and their countries. Without outside help these people will not achieve this. I have been to Cuba and have been around the Cuban people who work so hard and earn next to nothing.

    I hope you good people who are reading this can either spare a few pounds for these people, if you can afford it, or share this cause. These funding ways only work by word of mouth.

    I will be travelling to Cuba As soon as the UK put a flight on with a spare seat, my self and Steve Downed are hoping for a flight on the 21st. I plan on helping these people rebuild their lives, their communities and show them that there is love in this world.

    We have Jayde Webster who is staying on in Cuba to help the local people. She was the TUI rep at the Starfish whilst we was there.

    Every penny of your donation will be going to the Cuban people. We are not a charity but we are three independant people with a common passion, to help the people of Cuba.

    Some of the photos on here are of Jayde giving out parcels of items thst she has brought. she was saying thst you can really see how happy the people are that someone actually cares.

I will post as many updates as I can but as you can appreciate communications between here and Cuba can be difficult. The photo below is of Jayde giving out parcels that she has made up .

      Thank you everyone for your donations. As some of you will be aware there have been evacuation flights sent to Cuba today to evacuate the holiday makers and staff currently there. Jayde is staying in Cuba she is not returning with everyone. She is going to be our distribution point out there for now, until we can sort flights out there. Thank you so much for your generosity and we will keep you updated with everything that is happening.

      Thank you all so much for donating. Every little we raise helps. We are the only people who can say that every penny donated will go straight to the local Cuban people. The photos coming out of Cuba are devastating. Keep sharing the justgiving page and hopefully we will raise more much needed funds.
