More Than Tourists.

It's official ..... let the packing begin.

We now have our Cuban visas in hand.
This piece of paper permits us to do more than tan, dance and drink rum.

But along with the visa comes other responsibilities.
Like documenting supplies for Customs/Aduana preapproval.
When are bringing purchased supplies totaling over $2800.oo and donations in kind of over $3600.00.

A big thank you goes out to Ethicon and Codman, both members of the Johnson & Johnson Family of companies.
Their generous donation of suture material and surgical instruments will be a huge boost to the Spanky Project's work in Havana.

Also a big thank you to those that have made donations here by PayPal or through the Cuba Canada Friendship Association/Mackenzie-Papineau Memorial Fund.

One of the three veterinarians on this trip will be Dr.Michael Belovich,
practice owner /veterinarian of the
Yonge Street Animal Hospital
in Toronto.
If Dr.B's name sounds familiar perhaps it may be because you watch Animals House Calls.
He is a frequent guest on the Animal Planet show hosted by Ann Rohmer.

This is going to be a great trip !!
