After Hurricane Maria Essentials

Hurricane Maria caused unparallel devastation to all of Puerto Rico. My neighborhood where I grew up - in the town of Naguabo - surrounded completely from immediate family (over 400 people and they are all grandparents, unlces, aunts, cousins, etc,) has been destroyed. The storm was so strong it blew storm shutters away, blew up the windows and doors which allowed winds of 145-200mph with torrential rain destroy anything inside my family members houses. We live in a remote area where before the storm, there was no internet not cable tv prodivers. That is how remote is. Federal relief will take months to reach them, if they ever do. I'm flying there next Saturday to bring most needed supplies. Some do not have not even a floor mattress to sleep on. They lost it all. It would mean the world if you could help me help my neighborhood. Once I get there I will post photos and updates of the area. They are safe but they are running out of food and essentials (canned food, water filters, products for females, matches, lighters, water, etc). Please help me bring them some relief in the middle of this madness destruction. Thank you in advance!
