Description

The roof on the wooden casita at Tainasoy Apiario was damaged over one room in the storm. When FEMA came to tarp the roof three months after Hurricane María, workers walked on undamaged sections of the roof, causing further damage and leaks. As a result, the full roof was tapped and held down with ropes until April 2018, when Raíces Cultural Center’s Disaster Relief Support Fund purchased the roofing materials and the PR Resilience Fund’s Guagua Solidaria work brigade came to install the roof. The build was led by Carlos Chaparro, one of the farm owners at Tainasoy, who is also a carpenter by trade.
