Updates on Timba Viva – Urgent Medical Support to Cuban Community

Update posted by Maria Victoria OHana On Dec 12, 2021

Thank you to everyone who has so generously contributed to this cause!

We are really pleased to say that our first shipments arrived safely in Cuba and have been distributed by our partner doctors, who are ensuring the medications are administered properly and safely.

We are also very pleased we were able to pay for the shipment of a box of medical supplies gathered by Mariana Garcia Villar in Spain from her local pharmacy.

The good news is our campaign can continue, as the government has extended the law which allows unlimited importation of medical supplies, beyond 31st December 2021! Here's hoping we can contribute more medical supplies in 2022.

N.B. The patients pictured below consented to their photograph being taken and published.

Thanks to all who have donated so far!

We have used the first sum of funds collected to buy medicines in Spain (cheaper than UK) and ship them to Havana, which will take 40-50 days to arrive. Once they arrive we will send updates and photos on this page.

Below, you can see details of all the supplies we have purchased and their price in EUR, which together with the shipping costs came to 696.61 EUR (611 GBP).

Our team in Havana will be meticulously checking all the arriving medicines to ensure that every single one makes its way to the patients of La Timba.

We have also had a very generous amount of medications donated to Mariana Garcia Villar in Spain, who has kindly packed it all for us to ship to Havana using the campaign funds.

NEXT STEPS:

Milagros Cruz Suarez Pfleger (Maria Victoria's aunt) will be travelling to Cuba in November, and will be able to take an additional suitcase on our behalf with donations. We will need to continue to fundraise with your help (please share our campaign with friends) in order to cover the costs of the additional suitcase and the 23kg of medications we will need to buy.

Thanks again for all your help!

----------------------------

Gracias a todos por sus donaciones. La primera suma de fondos ha sido utilizada para comprar medicamentos en España (donde salen mas baratos que en el UK), y para cubrir los costos de envío a la Habana. El envío tardará entre 40 y 50 días en llegar. Una vez que hayan llegado, publicaremos actualizaciones y fotos del entrego a la clínica de la Timba y a sus pacientes.

A continuación, pueden ver cada uno de los suministros que hemos comprado, junto con las cantidades y los precios, además de los gastos de envío. En total, hemos gastado 696,61 EUR (611 GBP).

Nuestro equipo en La Habana hará un control meticuloso de todas las cajas cuando lleguen, para asegurarse de que cada uno de los medicamentos enviado llegue a los pacientes de la Timba.

PRÓXIMOS PASOS

Milagros Cruz Suarez Pfleger (la tia de Maria Victoria) ira a Cuba en noviembre y podrá llevar una maleta adicional de donaciones. Por ende, tenemos que seguir recaudando fondos para poder comprar más medicamentos, y para cubrir los gastos de la maleta adicional. Por eso les pedimos que compartan esta campaña con sus amistades.

Muchísimas gracias a todos.

¡Viva Timba Viva!
