Shortage of toothpaste for locals? anything else?

We would like to take some items down for the Cubians that they cannot get right now.

Any suggestions?

Happy Travels!

Butter, apparently, room in the suitcase for that,

On a different note, some people have posted comments about not taking gifts, however well intended, any advise please.
