United We Rise Puerto Rico

This is a Joint Effort with Church of God Inc.  West Palm Campus

As we are all aware, Puerto Rico is in a state of chaos and in  the midst of recuperating from the catastrophic hurricane, Maria. The majority of the Island is still without power, running water and no working or sucessful distribution infrastructure.

Being from Puerto Rico and knowing that there is a huge need in the southern region,  we plan to send  as much help and supplies to the devastated southern region of Puerto Rico as we possibly can.

Being from there myself and having my family there during this difficult time, specifically my 96 year-old grandmother, I would like to send as much help as I can.
To have a container shipped and delivered to a distribution site costs roughly $5,000.00. We would like to send 2 shipments; and if thats not possible, taking a flight to Puerto Rico with as many supplies as possible and make sure it gets to the people in need.

I urge for others who are familiar with any other region of Puerto Rico and are aware of the issues that region is going through, to do the same and start a gofundme page and reach out to the community to get their region some much needed help.

Puerto Rican Anthem:

"The land of Borinquen
where I have been born
is a flowery garden
of magical beauty.

A constantly clear sky
serves as its canopy
and placid lullabies are sung
by the waves at its [Borinquen's] feet.

When at her beaches Columbus arrived
full of awe he exclaimed,
"Oh!, oh!, oh!, this is the lovely land
that I seek"

Borinquen is the daughter,
the daughter of the sea and the sun.
Of the sea and the sun,
of the sea and the sun,
of the sea and the sun,
of the sea and the sun."
