In the days before Hurricane Sandy ravaged the East Coast of the United States, it made a disastrous run through the Caribbean. On October 24-25, 2012 Hurricane Sandy made landfall in Santiago de Cuba, Cuba’s second largest city, devastating the area overnight. The result was catastrophic, seeing massive damage to housing, government infrastructure, education and health facilities, and bring economic activity to a halt. Though the government has restored critical electricity and phone lines, many of the city’s citizens are left to rebuild their lives without assistance and do not have the means to do so.
