Welcome the Cuba Caravan
The Cuba Partnership Team and the Peace Committee invite you to welcome the Cuba Caravan to Plymouth on Monday June 25 at 7 p.m. in the Greenwood Room. Gail Walker of the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization (also known as Pastors for Peace) will be our guest, speaking about opportunities to improve US and Cuban relations, and how the US blockade against Cuba continues to impact our Cuban neighbors, including our sister congregation at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Marianao, Havana. Since 1992, the Pastors for Peace have led a yearly caravan to Cuba despite US restrictions, to bring humanitarian aid and show support for the Cuban people. This caravan has also supported the ministry of our sister church, and the yellow school bus that went with the first Pastors for Peace caravan in 1992 continues to be used by Ebenezer Baptist Church to this day! Gail Walker has served with IFCO/Pastors for Peace since 1987 and has been the director since 2011, leading many delegations to Cuba and other Central American nations. At this event, Gail will also share a short documentary called “Dare to Dream” about IFCO’s work in founding a world renowned medical school in Cuba that trains doctors from around the world free of cost, in order to practice medicine in under served communities worldwide, including the United States. Come learn how we can “Keep moving with Cuba!” There will be an opportunity to donate to IFCO/Pastors for Peace at the event.
