Welcome to our website

Mieke & Gerard             

Contactpersons Carlos & Yeni                  from Holguin

We, Mieke and Gerard, started in 2014 with the "Cuba Adelante" Foundation. Our goal is to help Cubans for a slightly better life and wellbeing. We are currently in contact with 5 homes for Children  without protection in the city of Holguin. We are also gaining more and more contact with various government institutions such as hospitals and schools. At home we are increasingly approached by people and agencies for advice, help or cooperation.                                  Our contacts in Cuba are Carlos and Yeni, they belong to the foundation, they do a great job in Cuba. They dedicate themselves with heart and soul to achieve a good result. They also have a CASA PARTICULAR where it is wonderful to stay. They also want to guide you through the region with you. (see: the page "Uw overnachtingen")  We are more and more enjoying the goal of Cuba; the beautiful landscape, the beautiful nature but especially the wonderful people.


Thanks doctors and nurses


We are very grateful to the Cuban doctors and nurses for what they do for the European (Italian) population. Their expertise will certainly help to fight the Corona virus and help people here.

A good number of people were interested in Cuba. We think it is a well-organized exhibition and the volunteers from Pasar who organize it are friendly and pleasant. Our compliments! We are happy to be there again next year!

We are now recognized as an official foundation in Cuba.
