The aftermath of Hurricane Maria

On September 20th Hurricane Maria, a Category 4 storm, tore through the island of Puerto Rico ripping down power lines, which severely affected residents’ access to clean water.

Even months after the hurricane, much of Puerto Rico is still without power.

Since the lack of electricity means water treatment facilities and purification systems aren’t working properly, people are forced to use bacteria-contaminated water. The cases of waterborne illnesses are on the rise putting many vulnerable lives at risk.

But you can partner with Roberto Clemente Jr today to bring clean water to those who need it most! Food for the Hungry is working with Roberto and our local partners on the ground to get water clean to those who need it most. Your generous online gift today will provide water to those who still do not have access.

Please give as generously as you can today to support the desperate needs of those affected by Hurricane Maria.
