MIAMI, Aug. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- This week, the Heal the Earth Foundation continues to progress with its "Rx for Cuba" tour. Thanks to the capital raised at the first two shows, the foundation was able to purchase Ibuprofen in bulk to send to Cuba. While packing the bags with the Ibuprofen, Dr. Farshchian said, "It's unfortunate that we physically have to bring this medicine by hand to Cuba because of the lack of shipping services into the country and the concern that the Cuban government will take the luggage away if we check in the bag. So we fly to Cuba with the medicine as a carry-on." These bags are being flown into Cuba by a Heal the Earth representative. They are hand-delivered to ensure they are given to the right people. The products, in this case Ibuprofen, will be given directly to the people in need. Kristen Carranza, the Associate Director of Heal the Earth, said, "Having these bags packed with medicine so quickly after our first couple of shows makes me optimistic for the future fundraising we have planned. We are making a huge effort to help people in need, and I'm so glad to see the progress we've been making thus far."
