Feed Puerto Rico more than Hope

Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico on September 21st, and almost three weeks after, its devastation continues to grow. It is estimated to be the biggest catastrophe to hit such a comprehensive area in the past 60 years, so while help has arrived to the San Juan area, some towns haven't been as lucky. Its inhabitants drink water from the creek, and share the little food they have with their neighbours. Reports advise that some of these people are only receiving 7 bottles of water per family, for an entire week.

To add to the crisis, family members living abroad are being charged prohibitive prices to send their loved ones care packages with food and water. It’s heartbreaking. We want to change that.

With your donations and our local contacts in shipping and tourism, we'll give clean water and food directly to the people in need. These people are our people. Please help us feed them more than hope.
