Jorge Badillo PR Hurricane Relief

Jorge Badillo-Guerra lives in Rincon, Puerto Rico with his wife and two children, along with many family members, friends and neighbors.  Jorge is a fantastic person and valued member of the Hewlett-Packard family.  The Rincon area and all of Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Maria (Category 4).   Many people in their area lost everything.  Jorge's home has been flooded and the roof is leaking.  There is no electricity, running water, phone service or reliable Internet.  Jorge is working hard along with others in his community to survive on a daily basis and to ultimately rebuild their lives, town & island.  Jorge has been collecting water at a local well for up to 14 people, but is hindered due to limits imposed by the  military.  Water for showers is very limited, so bottled water & body/face wipes are needed.  Food is limited in supply too, so non perishable food is needed.  Generators are needed, as there is no timetable for the return of electricity.  Chainsaws are helpful to clear debris from the hurricane.  Walkie talkies are helpful for communication.  All manner of clothing, furniture, household items, toys, books, school supplies and more are needed, as many people lost these items.  Jorge's home and many other buildings in the area will need to be rebuilt and repaired.   Money raised through this Go Fund me site will be used for all the needs listed above and more by Jorge for his family, friends & neighbors in Rincon, which is not getting a lot of attention from the government/military or aid groups more than 1 month after the hurricane; focus will be on immediate needs, then the rebuilding process.  Thanks to all who can help in any way.  Jorge and his family, friends and neighbors are very thankful for your support.  Together, we can make a difference in this world and spread good will & peace.
