As you know, some devastating natural disasters have struck very hard this year in the Caribbean, particularly in Puerto Rico. Restructuring and rebuilding after the hurricane is estimated to take years and cost billions of dollars. Many are still without power and have lost their homes and livelihoods and are unable to get the medical assistance they require.
Typically, relief efforts and donations pour in during the initial impact and then taper off when most needed in the later months. That is why we’ve decided to partner with Direct Relief in raising funds to help those in need in Puerto Rico.
Because Direct Relief has partnered with leading medical and pharmaceutical companies to provide relief, each dollar donated is able to stretch to approximately $48 worth of medical aid such as insulin, wound care items, chronic disease medications, and repellent for protection from the Zika virus to name a few. They’ve also joined in the effort to rebuild medical facilities and provide emergency flights for life to those in need.
Donations can be anonymous if you so choose.
Thank you for your support!
