How you can help Puerto Rico

How you can help Puerto Rico

I'm Puerto Rican. This is something you'll find out fairly quickly after meeting me, whether you ask about it or not.

If you don't know anything about Puerto Rico, here's some information to get your head around my small, rectangular island. It's 160km across and 85km north to south.

The island's 3.5 million people are now without food, water, shelter, medicine, fuel, or certain future for the reconstruction of the homes, cities, or economy.

Please consider helping by donating time or money to, or sharing these recovery efforts:

Unidos (The Hispanic Federation)
Puerto Rico Real-Time Recovery Fund

Taller Salud (women's health organisation)
Para la Naturaleza (cultural and natural preservation)

Puerto Rico thanks you.
Gracias.
