Not Just Tourists is a Canadian, volunteer-based, not-for-profit project that collects surplus medicines and medical supplies for use in Cuba. Canadians travelling on business or vacation deliver these much-needed supplies to doctors and clinics in their travel destinations.
Donated medicines are packed in donated suitcases with a letter from a Canadian doctor addressed to a doctor or clinic in the other country. One suitcase is sent with each volunteer tourist or business traveller to that country. The suitcase is delivered to or picked up by the intended recipient and the suitcase is left with the medicines.
