Life for Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico will never be the same, but you can help to rebuild and bring comfort to thousands of families.  

What this campaign is about.

This campaign will focus on bringing clean water and portable generators to as many families in need as possible. Families with children and those with medical needs will be our priority.

Why we need this now.

Days after Hurricane Maria devastated the island millions are lacking potable water, food, shelter, and communications. The electricity grid has been decimated due to a complete collapse an aging infrastructure. It’s estimated that it will take several months until thousands of American Citizens build back their homes or have electricity service reestablished.
Even if running water is established, the water is likely to be contaminated due to a faulty infrastrusture and access.

~Ok, I want to help.
~Good!

Just $15 can help bring a family clean water for one year.

Why I care.

I was born and raised in this beautiful island and could not sit idle watching the news and knowing that thousands of families with young children and seniors in homes without clean water and electricity to fulfill basic needs like refrigeration, cooking foods, and sanitation.

I teamed up with other friends to offer some relief through this campaign.

How the funds will be spent

Thanks to the consideration of MSR, our provider we will be able to secure community water purifiers at a lower cost. These purifiers can offer much needed clean water, they are durable, portable, eliminate bacteria and viruses such as choleradue to contaminationand don't need replacement parts to function. They can be powered by a car battery.
100% of the money will be used to purchase the items and to distribute them.

As soon as we reach 50% of the goal we will begin to purchase and ship the items. We want to send items as soon as possible in the next (3) weeks and will report on the purchase and delivery per what is needed the most.


Please donate anything you can, today. 

For some families that have specific medical needs, this is a matter of life or death.

~ Please act today, Puerto Rico needs us now more than ever.
   

Thank you.

Puerto Rico nunca será el mismo, pero usted puede ayudar a reconstruir y traer consuelo a miles de familias.

Días después de que el huracán María devastara la isla, millones de personas carecen de agua potable, comida, refugio y comunicaciones. La red eléctrica se ha diezmado debido a un colapso completo de una infraestructura antigua .

Se estima que llevará varios meses hasta que miles de ciudadanos estadounidenses reconstruyan sus hogares o reinstale el servicio de electricidad.

Esta campaña se centrará en llevar generadores portátiles y filtros de agua a tantas familias como sea posible. El enfoque será recaudar fondos para comprar tantos generadores portátiles y filtros de agua como los patrocinadores están dispuestos a vender.

Con solo $15 usted puede ayudar  una familia a obtener agua potable por un año.

Naci en esta hermosa isla y no podía quedarme paralizada viendo las noticias y sabiendo que miles de familias con niños pequeños y ancianos en hogares sin agua limpia y electricidad para satisfacer necesidades básicas como refrigeración, cocinar alimentos y saneamiento.

Me uní con otros amigos preocupados para ofrecer algún alivio a través de esta campaña. Por favor done lo que pueda, cada dólar cuenta.

Para algunas familias que tienen necesidades médicas específicas, esto es una cuestión de vida o muerte. Por favor actúe hoy, Puerto Rico nos necesita ahora más que nunca.

Queremos enviar los artículos lo antes posible, en las proximas 3 semanas una vez se reestablezcan los vuelos.  Informaremos sobre la compra y entrega de los filtros de agua y generadores dependiendo de la mayor necesidad. En este momento nos encontramos identificando austiciadores que puedan vender los articulos de necesidad a costo o otorgados por donacion.

Nuestro foco estará en el interior de la isla y en las áreas más destruidas y para familias con necesidades médicas y niños pequeños.

Por favor ayudenos hoy.
