Some fifty volunteers from GlobalMedic and Sunwing rolled up their sleeves and put together 480 family hygiene kits for victims of Hurricane Irma. Among other useful items, these kits contain water purification tablets, toothbrushes, toothpaste and soap. Each kit is designed to provide a family with drinking water for up to three months. In total, close to 2,000 people will benefit from the donation.

Getting personally involved in the operation, Carmen Casal, Director of the local Cuba Tourism Office, also dropped by to lend a hand to the group of volunteers. Sam Char, Executive Vice-President of Sunwing Travel Group, was also present commenting, “What we are seeing here is a real show of generosity by our employees,” says.  “This show of solidarity is a reflection of our enduring affection for Cuba and its people. We are proud to be partnering once more with GlobalMedic today and to have another opportunity to provide support for the communities affected by the Hurricane Irma.”
