Tourism in Cuba has come to a complete standstill due to the corona crisis. Many people have postponed their trip for a year. This has an severe impact on the lives of our people who work in tourism. It is especially dramatic for the guides and bicitaxi drivers. They live day to day and have therefore been unable to build up many reserves. They are the main breadwinners and they cannot support their families now. That is why we want to offer all these families temporary financial support.

Update (12-10-2020)

When we started this crowdfunding, we thought we might not be able to travel to Cuba for “a few months”. Probably no one at the time would have expected that seven months later tourism would still be at a standstill. Fortunately, the corona virus in Cuba is reasonably well under control! The situation has never escalated as in other countries because of the strict measures. By now most of the country is already virus-free, which is why Cuba is now gradually reopening the country and restart tourism. Unfortunately most tourists still stay away and therefore there is still is not a lot of work for our local guides.

Thanks to your help, we have already been able to help many guides with your donations. Our local team has visited our guides several times recently to hand them over the money you have donated. After long periods of sitting at home, waiting for tourists, they found it heartening to see how many people in the Netherlands, Belgium and other countries were thinking of them and transferred an amount. With your donations, our local guides have been able to provide their families with food, drink and other basic needs in the past months and they are very grateful to you for that!

We only fear that it will still take a while before tourism returns to its old level and that is why we still need your help. Would you like to contribute? Donate now!

Julio from Cuba

“My name is Julio. From the Netherlands I proudly organise individual trips to show you my Cuba. Every year we organise over a thousand trips to Cuba, which provides a good source of income for dozens of families. This is possible thanks to all those people who have travelled to Cuba with us. You know better than anyone how important tourism is for the local population and the impact that it has on the lives of these guides. Of course I want to be able to continue to organise these special trips, but I cannot do that without my guides. That's why I want to help them! ”

Dream now, travel to Cuba later

Luis Manuel

“I am the breadwinner at home, and live with my 1-year-old daughter Gema and my wife Mayte with my mother Teresita and grandmother Elisa. I used to organize a bicitaxi tour through the suburbs of Trinidad almost every day. I like that with this tour the tourists get a picture of the daily life of the Cubans. Now I try to grow vegetables at home, but I miss my excursion and the contact with people.”

This is what we are going to do

We want to support our local guides now that their main source of income has disappeared. Without a safety net, but with your contribution, the guides can get through this difficult time. So they can - as soon as it is possible - show us around their beautiful Cuba again.

 

Every euro, dollar, pound or any other currency counts! An amount of 25 euros is about a week's salary for a local guide. Our goal is to help every family with 100 euros per month. The more donations, the more families we can support and the longer they can sustain this.

What can you do?

You can make a difference! Help our guides through the corona crisis. With your donation, we can provide immediate relief to dozens of families.

Donate now! We cannot join platforms like GoFundMe due to the trade embargo. That is why we ask you to transfer your donation directly to us. Please mention

 

‘’Donation local guides’’. If you want to donate anonymously, you can mention this in the transfer too. The bank details are:
