My family is struggling in Puerto Rico. Please help.
The hurricane made landfall in my dad's home town, Yabucoa. The entire town's infrastucture was wiped out. Thankfully my dad's house held up and served as refuge for my younger brothers and their young families. The rains kept coming as did more landslides. My youngest brother lost his home entirely and is now living in a family members vacated home. Many have left for the US. Having to separate families has been hard on many.
The lack of power and infrastructure continues to make day to day difficult. Doctors have left. Food and basic necessities are still scarce. The town has seen little progress. It weighs heavy to know they struggle.
All money collected from this go fund me and direct contributions and shipments have been confirmed recieved. The aid received by family has been shared with extended family and neighbors. All are so very grateful.
If you want to help Puerto Rico in general, I've been recommending PROJECTO PECES as a reputable non-profit currently operating on the ground on the southeast side of Puerto Rico. They are established and operating in the area of need and are known to my family. www.pecesinc.org
Continued prayers are welcome and greatly appreciated.
May God Bless and multiply any and all efforts.
