There is a serious shortage of drugs in Cuba. Most of the pharmacies have many empty shelves like this one here on the picture.

Lots of Cubans abroad help their friends and families by sending them drugs from other countries.
So if you’re going to Cuba soon, you know what you can bring with you to support Cubans.
