Puerto Rico Rises is distributing building material to 500 families affected by Hurricane Maria. Now we are adding those recently impacted by the earthquakes and daily tremors. Buildings weren't strong enough and now they are getting weaker by the day. Thousands are still living in unsafe houses. We have already impacted 325 families and plan to reach 500 by July, 2021.
Based on the latest information by HUD, more than 300,000 houses were severely damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Maria. According to several news reports, 61% of the more than 1 million requests received by (FEMA) were denied to received any financial help. Now we are facing the damages caused by the constant and daily tremors happening on the Island.
By providing a safe home we are reuniting families, removing the burden of living in an unsafe place, and helping them to focus on other areas of their own reconstruction and well-being.
By providing a safe haven and secure home for more than 500 families allows that more than 2,000 individuals can focus on finding a new job, return to school, starting their own business and/or taking care of their families and well-being. Several neighborhoods that were totally destroyed will receive an impact on the economy by providing jobs and increasing the population with the rebuild of these houses. This will create stronger and resilient communities willing to work as a team.
