Thankfully we have been able to contact our family members and they are fine but in need of the basics like water, electricity and food including financial assistance for shelter and medical attention.
For the first time in our lives, our family and friends in Puerto Rico need our support.
We have already sent battery powered fans, water, batteries (AAA, AA, D, C, 9Volt) to some of the more vulnerable family members. I have a cousin on chemotherapy released from the hospital the day before Maria’s strike. Mayra has sick family members that need attention. Some of them may need to temporarily come to Miami to continue with their treatments and to escape from their current living conditions.
Many of you, friends and colleagues, have reached out to ask about our family and how to help them, suggesting opening a go fund me account.
This fundraiser is to help them with their urgent needs as well as for longer-term rebuilding efforts. We will give you information on how donations are used.
We will keep you updated as we know more. In the meantime, please donate, any amount will help our family recover, Rapidito..pasito a pasito.
