Although a percent of donations are eligible for administration costs, in this case, no administrative costs are deducted by the Mackenzie-Papineau Memorial Fund.

 The Mackenzie-Papineau Memorial Fund charitable organization has sent wire transfers to the account ‘Haiti Earthquake.’  This account is administered by the highest levels of the Cuban government - the Council of Ministers and set up to help the Cuban Medical/Disaster Brigade in Haiti — whose work has been praised by the UN. We are getting good value for our donations!  And Haiti is getting untold benefits as Cuba is also helping to set up a Health program for Haiti with doctor training, hospitals and clinics, etc.  They have also had the best record in fighting the cholera epidemic in Haiti.

We believe that this kind of unprecedented and invaluable help - which Cuba has been giving Haiti since arriving in Haiti for hurricane relief eleven years ago and staying to do health care -deserves to be supported as strongly as possible. The CNC urges you to support Cuba in this work by giving a donation.
