Hurricane Irma Relief Effort

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Cuba Unbound to Donate to Disaster Relief Organizations Following Hurricane Irma Destruction

 

Coeur d’Alene, ID (September 15, 2017) - Cuba Unbound announced today a plan to donate $200 per guest (see their Cuba trips) to aid in relief and recovery efforts for Cuban communities affected by Hurricane Irma. This donation will be distributed to CARE International who has set up a specific Irma Relief effort.

“To us, Cuba isn’t just a trendy travel destination. We love this country, the people, and communities,” said Brad Moss, Managing Director at Adventure Unbound®, the parent company of Cuba Unbound. “Our modest contribution per guest will not fix everything, but it will help in providing the much-needed support to the local communities beginning to rebuild from this catastrophe.”

Hurricane Irma was a category five when it struck Cuba’s northern coast, damaging thousands of homes and critical infrastructure. Thirteen of the country’s fifteen provinces have been affected, with significant damage caused mostly by flooding. 

“We are focusing on the relief first. Luckily, the routes we take on our trips are not affected too much and we’ll have an incredible season in Cuba – but people and communities still need a helping hand so our focus is with them right now,” explained Moss.
