In September of 2017, Puerto Rico was slammed by Hurricane Maria. It was the strongest storm that has hit Puerto Rico in 85 years, knocking out power to the entire island. The storm devastated homes, buildings, roads, and even trees were uprooted. Although it has been 2 years since the storm, the effect of the storm still lingers. Hundreds of people do not have access to proper medical supplies, a stable source of food, and clean water. With many inaccessible and damaged roads, it is difficult for a lot of people to reach proper health care facilities or even transport supplies. With difficulty accessing a clean source of water, many contract waterborne illnesses which can be fatal without immediate treatment. What many don’t know is that some people who have treatable illnesses like pneumonia, diabetes, and many more unfortunately die due to lack of appropriate medical supplies. Fortunately, the Afya Foundation has been a huge help for many of those who are struggling in countries like Puerto Rico when dealing with disaster relief. This wonderful organization provides medical supplies, toiletries, and much more critical necessities for those in need. We can help out Afya financially through checks, or donate any spare medical supplies and toiletries we have. You can even ask your doctor if they have any spare unexpired medical supplies that they are willing to donate. Together, we can make a difference and really help those who are facing times of great difficulty. Thank you!
Help me, Leav Michaeli, to raise money and supplies to support the efforts of the Afya Foundation in locations like Puerto Rico as well as spread awareness of the difficulty that is still being faced there even 2 years after Hurricane Maria.
