Local church collecting donations of medical supplies to take on trip to Cuba in March

The Thompson Pentecostal Assembly is looking to make a second trip down to Cuba to assist locals impacted by food insecurity and lack of medical supplies.


Pastor Mel Versluis explains the trip was originally planned for March of 2020, but that was hampered by the COVID-19 shutdowns across the globe.


Versluis says the team of five people are looking to help expand on the projects they began working on during their first trip in 2019.


That includes building an expansion for a chicken farm and making a concrete pond to begin raising fish.


He adds the team will be taking donations of medical supplies with them on the trip such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, vitamins, cold medication, band aids, and first aid ointment.


Donations can be dropped off at the church on 126 Goldeye Crescent.


For more information on the Thompson Pentecostal Assembly’s trip to Cuba, tune in to Thompson Today at 12:40 and 5:10 this afternoon.
