About Program

We highly encourage volunteers to join our organization. Together we can help more Cuban people, and make the country a better place.

Consider your impact: Volunteering abroad can be a rewarding experience for both volunteers and local communities, and at Go Overseas, we believe all volunteers should have the resources to make informed decisions about the type of volunteer project they want to partake in. However, despite best intentions, some organizations offering placements in orphanages may unknowingly place children in danger. You can read about the potential dangers of orphanage volunteering here.

With the help of our committed donors and volunteers, we provide aid through four programs:

Serving Families: We deliver financial assistance to struggling families Havana. On a monthly basis, we supplement their meager income with financial assistance. It is a small dollar-amount by U. S. standards, but it provides significant assistance to families where individuals typically only earn $50 per month.

Providing Medical Supplies: We support multiple hospitals in Cuba, facilities that are both in the capital city of Havana and in the rural setting of Güines. We deliver, in person, aid such as: equipment, supplies, and medication – everything from over-the-counter fever reducers to expensive antibiotics.

Supplying Day-to-Day Products: We deliver personal hygiene products and other supplies to families and clinics in Cuba. Without our help, these people would not have access to basic daily products that we take for granted in the U.S. like deodorant, toothpaste, and soap.

Feeding Seniors: Working with the Iglesia Rosario church in Cuba, we provide the funding and organizational support for a seniors meal program. The strength that can come from a simple nourishing meal that these seniors can’t otherwise be able to afford can make all the difference in their lives.
