Raul's family was in Puerto Rico when Hurricane Maria made landfall on Wednesday, bisecting the entire island with 150mph winds and a 50-60 mile span. Their hometown is in the eye of the hurricane, and they live blocks away from the beach. Unfortunately, given record winds and rainfall, there is no power on the entire island (and it could remain that way for months), so he hasn't been able to get in touch with them since the storm.
As Raul awaits updates and figures out next steps, this page is an opportunity to support him and his family through this difficult time. Our fundraising goal would cover Raul's prospective flight to Puerto Rico.
[This campaign was started by Maya, a colleague of Raul's at CZI. These funds will be spent at Raul's discretion to support himself and his family during this difficult time. Once the campaign is closed, funds will be withdrawn into Maya's bank account before being transfered to Raul's bank account]
