Almost FIFTY-FIVE days have passed since hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico you could be thinking that we're back on our feet but unfortunately for dozens of municipalities in the islands, the tens of thousands leaving to the continental US and the hundreds of thousands that still have no power, that is not the case.
Here are some facts from a government website, www.status.pr, about the current status of PR: 53% or more without power, 11% or more of the population of the island without water, 27% of the population without telecommunications service, 52 shelters still open and so on. We see this everyday, especially in rural areas, thousands living without a safe place to call home, food or water. For many life post-María in Puerto Rico is a very real struggle.
What once was abundant and accesible is now scarce. One day you might be hustling to get bottles of water or baby formula, the next day you might need to wait in a line for hours for ice just so you can conserve food or insulin as is the case with diabetic patients. Things are WAY far from normal and we still have a long way to go.
With your donations we will help hundreds of families in Quebradillas. We need to continue this relief effort, there is a lot of work to do.
Please donate and share our cause with your friends, family and loved ones.
