Why it’s so hard for Puerto Rico to get the aid that they need in wake of Hurricane Maria, and ways we can help now.
MSJ has all the info at 11:05 minutes into today’s show podcast below.
- UNICEF is a global leader in emergency response, last year reaching children in 344 humanitarian emergencies across 108 countries. We stand ready to provide aid before, during and after a crisis.
- Save the Children is currently on the ground in Puerto Rico responding to the needs of children. We are coordinating closely with the local partners on the ground to assess the specific needs of children and families amid reports of massive damage.
- All donations to this fund will support hurricane recovery and relief efforts in the Caribbean. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet survivors’ immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations responding to this disaster.
- Whether its food, drinks, shelter or cleaning supplies, The Salvation Army is ready to provide practical assistance. And we won’t stop when the winds die down and the flood waters recede. We’ll remain until the healing is complete, until all this devastation is but a memory.
