It has been a few months since I gave an update here to you all, so I thought it was a good opportunity now to let you know all the work I have been putting in with the help of the donations received here.
As has always been my goal, I want to help my people in Puerto Rico directly, with the most urgent needs they have, no matter how big or small they are. On a recent trip to Puerto Rico, when I was about to land in San Juan, I could not believe how many ‘blue tarps’ I saw on homes – primarily because most of them lost their roof during the hurricane. It made me think that although the immediate aftermath has been dealt with, there is still so much to do, especially when it comes to housing and shelter. I started to do some re-search into organizations and companies that help with repairing and building homes, to see if we could be of assistance there. I partnered with a non-profit organization called TECHO (www.techo.org) that strives to improve the lives of those in need, primarily focused on Central and Latin America. In more specific detail for Puerto Rico, the organization is helping building houses for those that lost everything during Hurricane Maria. With my mission to directly help those in dire need, I have helped the organization to bring awareness to this cause, as well as contributed financially with a part of the funds raised to help build homes for those in need.
I am so grateful and lucky to still be receiving donations here on the website, and my mission to help those that need it most won’t change. I could not thank you, each and every one of you, enough for donating, and helping the people of Puerto Rico. I will continue to post updates and show you what we are doing with the funds raised!
All the best,
