Hurricane Sandy was unique: it was the first in recent Cuban history to plow directly into such a populated area-nearly 500,000 in Santiago's city limits, another 600,000 on its outskirts and on mountain slopes turned treacherous in the storm. And its winds ripped through eastern Cuba for a full five hours before heading north. More than 600 hospitals, community clinics and family doctors' offices were damaged.
Santiago, whose people are described as the most hospitable, warm and generous of all Cubans are rebuilding a flattened city--its homes, hospitals and schools wrecked by the storm.
You can help the people of this beautiful city recover, your donations giving them the extra courage it takes to face such a disaster.
MEDICC and Global Links, with the aid of the Pan American Health Organization, are now sending medical supplies and equipment, hospital furnishings and critical medical books to Santiago and other provinces directly hit by the storm.
Help MEDICC help the people of Santiago...we pledge to make your gift count. We'll update you on the lives your donation touches, as hospitals and medical schools recover with your support.
