We’re always on the hunt for new ways to help our customers stay in touch with loved ones back home in Cuba. We’ve helped millions of people around the world send little bytes of happiness, whether it’s a quick “Buenos días”, or a call home about the ingredients for Grandma’s trademark recipe, those little moments make the difference and we love to help make them happen.

Now, we want to go one step further and we’re giving Cubans around the world a new way to help family and friends back home by offering Alawao gift cards on our website and app. With an Alawao gift card, your family and friends in Cuba can shop for essential food items and groceries online.

Alawao gift cards are now available through Ding and they are another way for you to make a little go a long way. Whether it’s for the weekly groceries or a special occasion you can’t get home for, with an Alawao gift card, you can let them know you’re thinking of them. Just like sending a top-up, it’s easy to do, and arrives instantly.
