WHO
WE ARE

LEADERSHIP.

The HOPE FOR CUBA Foundation was created by one Cuban American, born in Cuba, with a vision to change the course of how we can deliver support and aid to the people of Cuba.  Along with his team, Mr. Jorge Ignacio Fernandez will complete the mission set forth by the priorities and objectives of this Foundation.

"If you give a man a fish, you'll feed him for a day...if you teach a man to fish, you'll feed him for a lifetime."
