Hurricane Victims in Puerto Rico

As everyone knows Puerto Rico was hit hard by Hurricane Maria and families are struggling to survive with no electricity, no running water and many have their homes distroyed.
That is the case for our family in PR.
Anthony's dad's house had the roof removed by the winds and everything in the home was damaged by water.  Thankfully he can stay with his mother in the house next door. However, what is more worrying is not losing the material things, but the scarce access to food, water and health care. Anthony's grandmother is 87 years old and Anthony's dad is her main care taker.
We wish we could do more to help them, but with the country being destroyed we feel our hands are tied.  

Our plan is to raise money and transfer to them (Anthony's mom, dad, grandma) so they can buy food, water and whatever supplies might be available.  In the longer term, we would like to also help refurnish Anthony's dad's home (bed, mattress, couch)

We have had very little communication with them. We did not hear from Anthony's mom for over a week, and we were just praying she and her husband were safe. Thankfully they are ok, but we were informed that they face 8-14hr lines to buy food and water, and everything cost 2-3 times more then usual. 
We believe in a God that provides and protects, and your prayers are needed and welcomed.
If you also feel inclined to support us financially we will be extremely grateful! Any amount helps! 

Thank you and God bless you!!

EM PORTUGUES:

Como todos sabem Porto Rico foi terrivelmente atingido pelo Furacao Maria e familias estao lutando para sobreviver sem eletricidade, sem agua e casas destruidas.
Infelizmente esse e o caso da familia do Anthony.  A casa do seu pai teve o teto arrancado pelo vento e tudo foi estragado pela agua. Gracas a Deus ele pode ficar com sua mae (vo do Anthony) na casa dela. A vo do Anthony tem 87 anos e o pai do Anthony e quem cuida dela.  Nos desejamos ajuda-los mas com tanta destruicao e dificil acesso estamos com as maos atadas.
Nosso plano e arrecadar dinheiro para transferir para eles (pai, mae e vo do Anthony) para eles poderem comprar comida, agua e o que mais estiver disponivel. A longo prazo gostariamos tambem de ajudar o seu pai a comprar uma cama, colchao e sofa para repor o que foi perdido.
Temos pouquissimo contato com eles. Ficamos mais de uma semana sem ter noticias da mae do Anthony, mas gracas a Deus ja sabemos que ela e seu esposo estao bem. Mas nos informaram que tem que enfrentar filas de 8-14 horas somente para comprar comida ou agua, e tudo custa de 2-3x mais que o normal.
Nos cremos em um Deus protetor e provedor, e suas oracoes sao necessarias e bem-vindas. Se voce quiser tambem ajudar financeiramente ficaremos extremamente agradecidos. Qualquer quantidade ajuda!
Deus os abencoe!

Sinceramente,

Camila e Anthony Morales
