Ponce we are here!

My name is Carmen Rivera-Archie , I am the daughter of Carmen Torres Cepeda.  I have never done something like this , but I am asking for help . The Playa de Ponce has been devasted by Hurricane Maria. It's been six days after hurricane Maria and we haven't been able to get in contact with any of our family. In Ponce the airports are starting to open up and I'll be going for 10 days, Ponce is the only municipality that is still out of complete communication there is no gas and no news reports .There is no electricity or water and there was a lot  of flooding , supplies will all be essential . I am very worried about my mother Carmen Torres Cepeda and my dad Gilberto Marreo  I haven't spoken to them . my dad is 80 yrs. old and my mom is 74 yrs. old.My mother is a Cancer survivor and my dad can barely walk. The area they live in has many elderly people including themselves . They need food and water. They need help in rebuilding their homes. The money is going to be used to buy gas, food, water and medical supplies. My parents are going to be using and providing those supplies to their neighbors and other family members.
Anything that you can donate I will make sure they personally recieve this help.We need to come together and help the people of Puerto Rico , our people of Ponce. l will try and keep this page updated as much as possible,I  have also attatch the pictures we've been able to receive from my home town .If  anybody is reading this and has any information on Avenida Hostos in la playa de ponce please share!My parents, cousins, aunts and uncles weren't able to evacuate any help is appreciated.Thank you and God bless , please keep them in your prayers. I live in Ga and I feel helpless beiing so far away from them. I am trying to get them as soon as they can let me get there. Mom and dad help is on the way! I love you!
