Thousands of tourists travel to the island nation of Cuba each year. In Cuba you will find beautiful beaches, resorts and especially the beautiful Cuban people, but not far from these resort hideaways is the real “Non Tourist” Cuba that exists each day and night. As you search through this webpage, take a few moments to review the photos and challenges each Cuban experiences for daily life….especially the children. We at “Friends to Cuba” are seeking your support and assistance in managing and supporting a few projects along the north shore of Cuba, especially the children’s home/orphanage in Matanzas.
