Send-off of caravan to Cuba

caravan_0725Gail Walker (standing, right) of IFCO/Pastors for Peace hosted a fundraiser for the group’s 24th Caravan to Cuba, held in Brooklyn on July 12. The caravan will take supplies to help with reconstruction in the battered region of Santiago de Cuba, which took the full force of Hurricane Sandy last year. Cuba has the world’s best system for relocating people away from coastal areas when big storms hit. It had few deaths from hurricanes until Sandy slammed into the historic city of Santiago.
