Hurricane Maria victims in PR

Thank you for taking the time to read this Go Fund Me page. As we all know Puerto Rico was hit very hard by Hurricane Maria.  My brother in law, his wife and 3 small children were directly impacted. He was stationed in PR with the military and they have lost everything.  They are safe but very tired. They were one of the fortunate families who was evacuated out of PR by military cargo plane and they arrived today in Gainesville Fl.  I had a chance to speak with my sister in law today for the first time since they were hit by the hurricane.  The devestating stories she shared with me broke my heart. This go fund me was specifically set up to assist a nursing home located in Cabo Rojo. There are currently 15 elderly ladies. My family will not benefit from any funds. Again this was specifically created to help these 15 vulnerable ladies who will die if they do not receive the items they need.  The last contact she had with these women was 3 days ago.  They have no water, electricity, toiletries, medicine, or food. The ladies are sitting either naked or in soiled clothes.  Many are wheelchair dependent. They had no way to bathe them. My brother in law took whatever water and food  they had left in there house to them. But they are dying. Two of the ladies were abandoned outside of the home by their families. We are in need of everything for the grandmas! They are far away from ports and airports.
We are desperate and need help! The money raised will be used to ship items for the nursing home, my sister in law has a point of contact there.
