A nonprofit group will continue their annual trip to Cuba, despite the dangers of going through Mexico.
The Pastors for Peace program has 50 people in attendance this year. They will deliver supplies like computers and medicine to the people of Cuba. The attendees said they aren’t scared of going through dangerous parts of Mexico to get to Cuba, because the aid they are providing is so important.
“We don't feel deterred from our mission, from the result… of the more recent activities,” said Gail Walker executive director of Pastors for Peace. “We feel strengthened and empowered to continue to do the work that we're doing.”
Pastors for Peace members said they will be crossing the border Wednesday and will travel to Tampico, Mexico. Their supplies will be shipped by boat and their members will travel by plane.
