DEFEND PUERTO RICO FUND
There's a humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico. Hurricane Maria, a category 4 hurricane landed in Puerto Rico the morning of Wednesday, September 20th, just a few days after Hurricane Irma. The impact of hurricane Maria has proven to be fatal, devastating the island’s infrastructure, producing prolonged electrical outages and water, food, gas and medical supplies shortages.
The DEFEND PUERTO RICO HURRICANE FUND is committed to provide support to low income communities and communities of color. Most likely these disenfranchised communities that have been severely affected will be overlooked by relief and rebuilding efforts and will face a slower recovery than other parts of the island. To ensure the money raised by this campaign reach those who most need it, Defend Puerto Rico has partnered with local community-based organizations in Puerto Rico, Taller Salud, COPI (La Corporación Piñones Se Integra), and Nuestra Escuela. 100% of your donations go to supporting the purchase of food, medicine, construction and clean up supplies, power generators, and other things needed for the recovery and rebuilding of our beloved island.
