Irma Relief for Josh & Eenaiyah

Dear Presidians and friends of the PGS community,

One of our own needs our help.

Joshua Morales (C21/PA6, Dual Degree) has been living with his partner, Eenaiyah, in Puerto Rico since he graduated this past Spring.
 
Eenaiyah recently developed health problems which have made it difficult for her to move around, much less work. Because Josh is bootstrapping his own startup, they were facing prohibitive health care costs*. So they decided to move to southwest Florida, saving up the money they needed to rent an apartment and cover Eenaiyah’s medical expenses.

Unfortunately Hurricane Irma had other ideas, ravaging the island weeks before they were set to leave. Spending their savings and more just to escape the aftermath, they managed to get to Washington, DC, as their home and infrastructure in both locations was severely affected.

With the help of some friends they have been able to move to a house in Florida but they still need our help with the following:

●     Rent - including move in costs (First/Last Month + Deposit)
●     Medical Expenses (Eenaiyah's condition is getting worse and ACA enrollment doesn’t open until 11/1) - they currently don’t have enough to afford a doctor, much less medicine
●     Food and other living expenses


Our goal is to raise at least $5000 to help get them back on their feet but in truth their needs exceed that, so whatever you can chip in will help!

Donations are welcome via gofundme, or via PayPal to [email redacted]. 

Thank you so much for whatever help you can provide!


*Due to its status as a territory, the ACA works a little different in Puerto Rico; despite being the only territory to implement ACA rules, Puerto Ricans are not eligible for subsidies - a particular issue as coverage is more expensive post-ACA as there is no individual mandate either.

 

This campaign has been organized by a group of PGS alumni & staff. All donations will go directly to Joshua.
