"Strong People Stand For Themeselves but Stronger People Stand Up For Others"
My homeland has been destroyed and devastated out their natural resources. Their economy and people are genuinely suffering, concerned, desperate and its getting worse. The island is in a complete debacle. I think that if there is no real help coming in the next week or so this will be coming to subcomed the island escalating the crisis to the big depression in the early 1900's when thousands of puertorricans left the island to New York. At this moment there is barley any available flights and they expect that around 2,000 people leaving per day to Florida. Sick people are starting to die now and others had taking their lives due to the lack of resources. Hurracaine Maria whiped Puerto Rico. Join our humanitarian cause! Please, help me to help my family and friends in Puerto Rico. If you know someone in the island or have family or friends there, please get in touch with me. We are trying to get people together by social media and making sure that the people we know have funds and supplies to survive. The island needs water, food, supplies to subside the caos that represents an emergency like this. Just imagine! NO water, no food, no electricity, no phone service and no medicines among others for possibly weeks to months.
"After losing everything, some Puerto Ricans say the only thing they have left is their faith".
According to the Associated Press: Less than two weeks after Hurricane Irma made landfall on the island, Sixteen people have died as a result of hurricane a number local officials expect to rise. The island has virtually no running water or electricity; around 80 percent of the island’s crops have been destroyed. Scores of Puerto Ricans are gathering around what’s left of the island’s cell towers, desperate for contact with loved ones.
Nearly all of the U.S. territory’s 3.4 million residents need assistance recovering from the storm. Here’s how you can help.
Cash. Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly.
GoFundMe has also created a hub that includes all campaigns for Hurricane Maria. You can also find campaigns like ours od individual families seeking help for loved ones.
I'm collecting money to help family members, close friends or families we know by first hand that had lost their house or pertencies, lost their jobs and need monetary help more than any assistance provided by the goberment at this moment of crisis.
The money raised in this campaign will be divided to help individual families that need to pay bills, buy perishable food items, and pay for immediate needs that only money can buy.
Thank you for all your generosity!, I know all of you that had donate money to this campaign were moved by the personal connection that exists between us. Family, clients and patients of mine thanks again for trusting me to help others far away from home in trouble times like this.
Love and appreciation to all!
