Puerto Rico Disaster Relief Fund
Please make a contribution to Raíces Cultural Center’s Puerto Rico Disaster Relief Fund. In January of 2018, Raíces will be sending a disaster relief brigade to the island, which was devastated by Hurricane María on September 20, 2017. Team members will include a registered nurse, herbalist and general relief workers. The working goals of this group include:
- Distribution of relief supplies including, medicines, herbal remedies, seeds, solar lights, tools, mosquito netting and other necessities.
- Rebuilding efforts and repairs for family and friends whose homes were damaged by the storm.
- Emotional and spiritual counseling for family and friends located in remote areas of the island who have not received sufficient support or aid.
- Documentation and support of work being done by grassroots, on-the-ground organizations, like Casa Pueblo, Plenitud PR, PR Resiliency Fund/Departamento de la Comida and the Organización Boricuá de Agricultura Ecológica de Puerto Rico. Supplies relevant to the work of each of these organizations will be given to them, and a monetary donation will be given to Casa Pueblo.
Thank you in advance for your donation, every bit helps. Donations to this campaign will help to fund the relief trip as well as purchase all related relief supplies. All funds raised beyond the cost of the relief trip will be donated directly to Casa Pueblo.
*If you would like to make a recurring donation, or you do not already have a Paypal account to process your donation through this form, please make your contribution directly on our Network for Good or Paypal donation pages, designate your donation to “PR Relief Fund” and we will manually add the amount you donate to our goal.
