Nearly one year after Hurricane Maria, thousands are still displaced, have no homes, jobs, or access to health care in Puerto Rico. Schools have been closed, businesses have struggled to reopen, and the island's most vulnerable residents are just one storm away from losing what little they have. Puerto Rico still needs our help!
The Hispanic Federation created the UNIDOS Disaster Relief and Recovery Program with a clear goal: to serve the immediate and long-term needs of families and communities in Puerto Rico. To do so, the Federation has taken unprecedented action, helping to coordinate hundreds of donation drives in the U.S. mainland, distributing millions of pounds of food, water and essentials to those most affected by the storm, delivering emergency relief aid to the 78 hard-hit municipalities, and seeding 28 million dollars to support emergency relief and recovery projects throughout Puerto Rico.
The scale of disaster in Puerto Rico requires all of us to support our fellow American citizens on the island and families whom have been displaced in what is unquestionably a long journey towards a just recovery.
I have created a donation page to help Puerto Rico. Proceeds will be used by the UNIDOS Disaster Relief & Recovery Program to help our family, friends and fellow citizens in Puerto Rico.
Please consider making a donation. Thank you for your generosity!
