URGENT!!! Share Please!!! Since Hurricane Maria Hit the island of Puert Rico. My name is Arlene Alvarez. As you have heard, thousands if not MILLIONS are without food, power, medicine, or even shelter. My father is also on that list. My father never made it to a shelter, unfortunately and the last phone call he had with my sister he told her "it was too late" before the call disconnected. For the last four days I have been in contact with an organization that organizes rescues. They have been helpful in respect to calming millions of residents of the USA who are worried about their families. These rescue organizations however are extremely busy and don't have the ability to look for specific people. My father like many others has a medical condition ( Diabetic )and uses a walker for minimal steps to get around his home. His medications are always delivered to him by mail from the U.S. however his last medication shipped was before Hurricane Irma. He was already on low supply before hurricane IRMA hit. Now Hurrican Maria strikes and cripples Puerto Rico and its people. While there is tremendous confusion regarding supplies being stuck in Florida and rescuers hands are tied, mine are NOT.
Here is what I desperately need:
- Funds to buy 2 tickets round trip from the USA to Puerto Rico
- transportation for once I get on the island
- To purchase as many supplies as I can to take with me.
-Medicine for my Father
While I am there, I will take down the names and phone numbers of the people in Puerto Rico who are desperatly in need of our help. I will personally let their families know in the USA the conditions that their in. I do have contacts in Puerto Rico who will make sure I am safe in this journey. Please donate whatever you can, even as low as a dollar. Let's make this happen. Let the people of Puerto Rico know that we care! People helping People. I promise you I will do a follow up on Facebook in a group called
"A Promise to Help Puerto Rico."
Thank you and God Bless.
