Rebuilding my Grandparents Home









Hi guys!

As many of you know, Hurricane Maria swept through Puerto Rico, as a Category 5 hurricane, back in September. This was only 2 weeks after Hurricane Irma brushed northern Puerto Rico. The devastation was unimaginable. Many lost their homes and belongings. My grandparents were some of those people. They live in the mountains of Ciales, and the first help they received was in November; two months after the storm. They have no electricity and running water comes and goes. They lost everything. They salvaged what they could and are now living under the foundation of their home in a cement bunker. They did the best they could to set up a living space and have been able to cook and clean with the little they have. My grandmother even washes clothes with a rock, water, and soap. Primitive living at its finest. My grandfather has started to rebuild their home but they cannot afford everything. This is where I am asking for help. They need donations to go toward the rebuilding of their home and some of the furniture to go into it. They have been living this way for 7 months! Please help any way that you can, may that be prayers or a donation! And thank you!
