On September 18th, a Category 3 Hurricane wreaked havoc on the mountainous island of Puerto Rico as it made landfall in the southwestern region of the island bringing with it 30 inches of rain in a matter of hours. Rivers breached their banks wiping out infrastructure as the water rushed downstream, ensuing mudslides in their wake. There is widespread damage to homes and infrastructure throughout the region with many families losing everything. Currently most residents have no power or clean running water. We need your help to provide storm relief as Puerto Rico begins its hurricane recovery.
We are committed to providing immediate assistance to sustain those most at risk. Through our partnership with Today’s Satellite Television, we can assess on-the-ground needs and target communities that were hardest hit. By partnering, we can purchase hanging solar lamps at cost and source non-perishable food items through contracts with large local grocery retailers.
Here is a price list of items that your donation will purchase. By donating $37 you can send a bag of groceries plus a solar light. All donations will be impactful for families who have lost everything.
Send a bag of groceries to a household for $20.
After Hurricane Maria we found that many school children were unable to do their homework in the evenings without light. This bright LED lamp illuminates plenty of area for cooking, reading, studying, etc. Support a family and give $17 today!
