Stand BY Valentin family Anasco, PR

My name is Robert Ortiz, I live in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. I was born in New York but raised in Puerto Rico. I spend all my childhood and half of my adult life in the township called “La Playa” in Anasco the west coast of Puerto Rico. My mother, my brother and some of her siblings and their families live there and all of them need assistance after the devastation of hurricane Maria.

In September 2017 the island of Puerto Rico was hit by two major hurricanes Irma and Maria. On the evening of September 20 Maria, a category 4 Hurricane, destroyed much of the island of Puerto Rico leaving millions of families without electricity, food and water. The island was declared a disaster zone. My family resides on the west coast of the island and they got hit hard with the damaging winds that took the roofs off the houses and then the rain flooded the top floors of the houses. Additionally, Anasco got flooded by the river Grande and Caribbean sea. Some of my family lost the roof of their houses and all of them lost precious items collected over their lives.
