Donate now to help continuing recovery in Puerto Rico

Wednesday, May 1, 2019

Puerto RicoWe will not forget Puerto Rico. News cycles move on, but the losses of Puerto Rico remain, largely forgotten by the country that claims them as a territory, the United States.

After two massive hurricanes in rapid succession — Irma and Maria — Puerto Rico was left staggering. Nearly 3,000 people were killed by the storms and their aftermath. Electricity was down, water and food were tainted, and homes were flooded or washed away. Federal aid was slow to arrive and insufficient to the need. The electrical blackout lasted for months, sparking a health care crisis, as refrigerators, medical equipment, water pumps, and sanitation networks were disabled. 

Our contributions will be channeled through several ministries including Escuela Abraham Lincoln in Ponce, PR and Fort Washington Collegiate Church.
