Hurricane Maria Relief
Puerto Rico made headlines in September 2017 when Hurricane Maria hit the island. This storm is now known as the worst natural disaster on record in Puerto Rico. It also was the 10th most intense Atlantic hurricane on record worldwide.
Hurricane Maria left the island in great disarray with excessive, devastating damages. This included absolute destruction of their electrical grid. Nearly 3 months after hurricane Maria, one third of the island is still without power. As of November 2017, 499 people were killed by the storm in Puerto Rico. This does not include the many others who lost their lives in surrounding areas.
The catastrophic damage from hurricane Maria still affects the country today and donations are needed for relief efforts. If you want to help, please consider a donation to the Foundation below. Their efforts have been focused on bringing clean drinking water and electricity to those who need it most.
