In coordination with partners, we have distributed thousands of dollars in medical supplies and medications to local hospitals and institutions in need. Also, many members of our team have provided free medical care going door to door in underserved communities and continue to do so.
Since November 2017, we have raised over $9MM in contributions, grants, noncash and in-kind donations, which have allowed us to move our mission forward to help rebuild and uplift vulnerable communities within Puerto Rico.

Increasing Access to Clean Water
In coordination with partners, we distributed over 100 water filtration systems in Vieques and educated its people on their appropriate use. We realized these filters had a huge impact in health and disease prevention so we distributed many more throughout Puerto Rico. In addition, the diaspora was key in donating thousands of bottles of drinking water, which we distributed across the communities in need.
Creating Education Programs
By partnering with various networks in the diaspora and implementing different programs, we hope to restore and enhance the quality of childhood education of schools in underserved communities. The programs also seek to provide more opportunities for children to participate in fun, yet educational, activities. In our continued support, we have donated essential school supplies to families in vulnerable communities.
