“Puerto Rico: Recover, Rebuild and Relaunch” Campaign
On September 6th, Hurricane Irma, a category 5 storm, hit Puerto Rico with a glancing blow, taking out power in virtually the entire island. Just 14 days later on September 20th, Puerto Rico was struck head on by another Category 5 Hurricane, María, which entered Puerto Rico on the southeastern coast. The result was devastating. Overall damage is estimated to be in excess of $95 billion!
The challenges in the aftermath of the storm have been enormous
About Our Campaign
The “Puerto Rico: Recover, Rebuild and Relaunch” Campaign involves 4 not for profit organizations which sponsor and run over multiple programs in all corners of Puerto Rico, for men and women, boys and girls, old and young. These programs provide social and community service through educational, cultural, and formative programs which touch the lives of thousands of Puerto Ricans every year. Like all other programs in Puerto Rico these entities suffered extensive damages. In addition, the local base of donors, who normally contribute the brunt of the resources to operate our programs were also highly impacted by the storm and its aftermath, leaving them without resources to give the assistance they normally provide.
