Our Roles 

Because the healthcare system and public health system is very good in Cuba, our roles will be different than those in other countries.  We will be taking medications and supplies to our Cuban colleagues for their use long after we depart.  We work closely with churches in Cuba to serve their communities.

This trip encourages both healthcare professionals as well as others who would like to be a part of this partnership who are not in the healthcare field.
