Hurricane Maria: Help Children of Villa Esperanza

A microproject by Jake's Diapers, Inc. Vetted since 2016 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit


Villa Esperanza was decimated by Hurricane Maria. Of 130 homes, only 25 remain. The families of Villa Esperanza live in dire poverty, in simple shack-like homes. Six months after Maria, there is still no electricity or garbage pickup. Located near San Juan, Villa Esperanza and her people seem to have been forgotten. In this tight-knit community of survivors, there are approximately 25 babies in dire need of diapers. This project will provide cloth diaper kits to those in need.

Families in Villa Esperanza have lost homes and livelihoods. Just struggling to survive after Maria, these families are unable to afford diapers for their babies. Your support will provide complete supplies of cloth diapers (panales de tela) to the children who call Villa Esperanza home.


By providing a complete supply of cloth diapers, these children will have enough diapers to stay clean, dry, and healthy. Families will no longer have to choose between food & diapers, and will be able to focus on other urgent needs as they rebuild and recover.

Long-Term Impact

As our partner organizations in Puerto Rico continue to have their diaper needs solved, they are able to save funds and plan for future improvements in their care. This can mean adding educational programs, offering better healthcare, improved quality of food (more protein!) - all steps that set these babies up for long term survival and productive members of society.
