By all means,
take some. Cubans have nothing yet they will offer you a gift, be it an
orange from their garden or a cup of coffee. We had more stuff in our
little guests room than an entire village. The only word of caution is
what to take. They need clothes, shoes, books, medicine (like Tylenol),
fishing gear (nothing fancy), dishes, all the basic necessities of life.
It's also nice to have some luxuries.An nice scotch will be a big hit.
Kids need toys but be careful.
