The Story

Puerto Rico needs your generosity. Hurricane Maria took us down, but we'll get back up with compassion and resilience. ¡Pa' Arriba Puerto Rico! seeks to help in two ways. First, provide immediate relief with survival supplies like tarps (for intermediary rooftops), rope, solar lanterns, first-aid kits, and more. Second, provide long-term relief by adopting secluded, vulnerable towns and organizations whose missions serve the neediest cases. We are taking a grassroots, localized approach, with our community-rooted connections on the island.

Conditions on the island remain dire. Many areas still lack water, food, and medicine. There are long lines to get a few liters of gasoline. Banks are allowing limited cash withdrawals. Towns remain in complete isolation with no cellular service and collapsed bridges and roadways. Electricity will be out for for months. People are suffering and dying in the wake of this catastrophe.

Your tax-deductible donation will go to immediate concerns today and long-term healing tomorrow.

¡Pa' Arriba Puerto Rico! is an initiative of Lotus of Compassion, whose mission is "turning on the perfect light within." Lotus of Compassion, Inc is a spiritual refuge to transform yourself, align your consciousness, and strengthen your practice. We promote global unity, awareness and divine alignment with universal wisdom and unconditional love.

¡Pa' Arriba Puerto Rico! team of volunteers include Virginia and Sedo Sanchez, Gerardo Velazco, Gabriela Sanchez (founder, Power Street Theatre) and Quiara Alegría Hudes (Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright).

Thank you to the Volunteers who have joined the efforts of Lotus of Compassion in Philadelphia getting the care packages to several remote areas of the island including Camp of The Forgotten and Caonillas in Utuado, Jayuya, Barrio Barrancas in Barranquitas and other areas such as Orocovis, Cidra and Cayey. We urge you to support our efforts and those of other groups that have continued to reach out to the most affected families in these and other regions of the island. Below we share a YOUTUBE video by another group that shows the devastating crisis faced by our people. https://youtu.be/sNRcS1XiGpE
