Deadly Tornado in Cuba

Dear Friends, 

As you know, sometimes the headlines do not focus enough on the important things happening around the world. In fact, many of you are probably unaware that a deadly tornado swept through Cuba recently, though it was reported by major news outlets like BBC and CNN.

Global Action staff learned about the tornado because many of our own students were affected. These students are our heroes - people who are already making big sacrifices to study with us so that they can change their communities. They are now suffering significant hardship, some having lost most or all of their possessions.

We are still assessing the situation (power outages have made communication difficult), but we want to do everything we can to help our students. Yuniel Cruz from our staff is going to Cuba to assess the needs on the ground and organise relief efforts. Please pray for Cuba and everyone affected by the tornado. We will keep you informed on our efforts to serve those in need.  

Thank you for giving toward the work of Global Action. Your generosity is not taken for granted. Together, we are changing the world.
