We are grateful for the interest of friends of Cuba and Cubans residing in Greece who have been interested in supporting Cuba in times of pandemic and intensification of the blockade. Cuba has always contributed and in turn has accepted international solidarity. You can donate and support Cuba.
From Greece the banks have rejected transfers from Greek friends to Cuban banks. Therefore there is the alternative of donating through MediCuba Europe. If you are interested, please contact the Cuban embassy in Athens by email. firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be informed about the details.
