Our goal in partnership is to come alongside the Cuban church and help them with their vision in reaching Cuba for Christ by meeting the spiritual and material needs of the Cuban church as God leads and provides.

Currently over 550 boxes are delivered to families twice a month. One box provides a family of four with food for a week.
