Campaign to help send 7000 white canes for the blind in Cua
The Canadian Network on Cuba launches the latest campaign “Reg’s Wish” to help Cuban’s
There are currently 30,000 Cubans registered with the Cuban Blind Association. That includes almost 1,000 children. We asked the Association, “what is their greatest need?”. The answer was surprising, white canes. Something as simple as a cane can help someone with little or no sight navigate in a very challenging world. Especially a young child.
It was even more surprising to learn that the immediate need is for 7,000 canes. So that is our goal.
Initial estimates suggest that a cane will cost approximately $10. For every $10 donated we will place a cane in the hand of an adult or child in Cuba.
