SPECIAL GUEST: OLGA FERNANDEZ RIOS, FROM THE CUBAN INTERESTS SECTION IN WASHINGTON, WILL SPEAK AND BRING A VIDEO SHOWING THE HURRICANE DAMAGE IN CUBA.

Cuba was recently hit by HURRICANE MICHELLE, the most destructive storm in 50 years. In spite of 150 MPH winds, loss of life was minimal because of a skillful evacuation of danger areas. However, HUGE DAMAGE has been done to
Cuba's infrastructure and economy, including:

*TENS OF THOUSANDS OF HOMES DESTROYED OR DAMAGED.
*HOSPITALS, SCHOOLS, ELECTRICAL INSTALLATIONS AND OTHER
VITAL INFRASTRUCTURE DESTROYED OR DAMAGED.
*ONE MILLION ACRES OF SUGAR CANE AND AT LEAST 20% OF THE
SUGAR CANE CROP DESTROYED

A massive clean up is underway. We all know of the generous way in which Cuba has helped other countries in moments of crisis. THE CUBAN PEOPLE, WHO HAVE BEEN SO GENEROUS WITH HELP FOR OTHER PEOPLE HIT BY NATURAL DISASTERS, NEED AND DESERVE OUR SOLIDARITY AT THIS MOMENT.

All contributions will go to children's hospitals in Cuba.
If you can't be there on Sunday, you may send contributions to the
CHICAGO CUBA COALITION,
P.O. Box 469, Chicago Il 60690

Tax exempt contributions can be made out to
"IJF"/CCC Storm Relief".
