They are now living in exile in Kentucky, but two Cuban Damas De Blanco ("Ladies In White") have not forgotten the people of Cuba, especially those in Holguin province in the eastern part of the country. (Generally speaking, that's the part of Cuba my father's family is from.)
Martha Diaz Rondon and Caridad Caballero Batista, two Cuban patriots forced to leave the island because of their opposition to the Castro dictatorship, are the forces behind Manos Solidarias ("Helping Hands.")
Learns about how these Cubans are helping Cubans, and what you can do to assist their efforts.
The Lady in White, Martha Diaz Rondon founded “Manos Solidarias” in 2009. With very limited resources she saved money to bring gifts to children, disabled, elderly and rural households in Holguin, Cuba. After, the Ladies in White Laura María Labrada Pollan (Havana), Caridad Caballero Batista (Holguin), Gertrudis Ojeda Suarez (Banes) were integrated into this humanitarian work. Martha Diaz Rondon and Caridad Caballero Batista now live in Kentucky, USA and will continue their work in exile with our help.
