AceShowbiz - Camila Cabello and Gloria Estefan are hoping to highlight issues in Cuba with posts supporting activists who took to the streets of Havana over the weekend to protest power outages and food shortages.
As COVID-19 cases spike amid an economic crisis, thousands have lost their jobs during an ongoing lockdown, and the "Havana" singer and Estefan are hoping to turn the eyes of the world to their parents' homeland.
"Hey guys, there is a major crisis right now in Cuba and we need your help to spread awareness," Cabello tweeted on Sunday, July 11. "Deaths from COVID are rising rapidly and because of the lack of medicine, resources, basic necessities and even food many people are dying."
Estefan added, "The Cuban people are reaching their breaking point! I stand with them as I always have!" Along with the message, the "Conga" hitmaker uploaded a clip of protesters chanting.
Actress Eva Mendes has since reposted Cabello's message on Instagram. Calling the "Senorita" hitmaker her "fellow hermana Cubana," the "We Own the Night" actress wrote in hers, "Please help spread awareness. Please comment on any updates/ information you may have. I stand with my people."
There have also been messages of support posted by Cuban artist Yotuel, who joined protestors on the streets of Little Havana in Miami, Florida, alongside his wife Beatriz Luengo.
"Let's support our people in Cuba," the Orishas star wrote on Instagram. "Cubanos, let's take the streets."
