Hurricane Fiona & Ian Response
This hurricane season is proving to be a destructive one.
First, Hurricane Fiona hit Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, causing catastrophic damage across the islands– triggering an island-wide power outage in Puerto Rico, flash floods, and mudslides. Afya responded with first aid, wound care, and personal hygiene supplies for families reeling from the storm.
While Afya’s efforts in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic continue, Afya now turns its eyes to Florida, where Hurricane Ian unleashed devastating floods and life-threatening storm surges. Afya is in touch with Federally Qualified Health Centers across the state and will send critically needed supplies in the coming days. As hurricane season rages on, we will continue to monitor vulnerable regions to identify areas where we can be of assistance.
