As most of you know, Hurricane Maria ripped through Puerto Rico on September 20th, 2017 as a category 4 storm. Unfortunately, PR is still in a crisis and needs help.
The New York Department of Health is sending healthcare professionals to help deal with the medical crisis that is occuring. Colleen is heading PR or the US Virgin Islands for 16 days to offer her nursing help.
I've created this gofundme on her behalf to help alleviate some of the costs associated with her travel. This includes all of the things they were told to bring in their briefing (mosquito netting, 3 days of food and water, water purifier, proper clothing, etc.)
Please consider donating to help Colleen help others!
(Sidenote: For those wondering who I am, I am one of Colleen's friends. With how quickly everything has happened and how fast she had to prepare, I wanted to create this gofundme as I know she didn't have the time to do so herself. All funds will be withdrawn to Colleen!)
