Our people in Puerto Rico are well known for saying present in disaster situations no matter the side of the world or magnitude of what happened. Throughout history we have been, usually among the first to arrive, to assist in earthquakes, attacks, hurricanes, tsunamis, and recently the covid.
The pandemic brought restrictions that no one in the world understood, conceived, or had not even experienced. Also, has brought an unprecedented rise in unemployment, the closure of businesses, schools, and affected the general mood or mental health of families globally.
However, alternatives were sought and the benefits offered by the internet, virtual meetings, and social networks were taken advantage of.
To us, this brought us the desire to find a way to continue helping our people without putting our volunteers, partner organizations or those we provide services to at risk.
For our part, we decided to contribute by taking home to home, in the neediest sectors food boxes that provide fruits, vegetables, dairy products, and meats to provide a balanced diet for the whole family.
Thanks to our alliances with over 140 organizations, we are reaching every corner of our Island and assisting thousands of families in dire need.
By taking the necessary security measures and respecting the protocol, we organize drive-thru always protecting those involves.
Despite the consistently stressed social distancing, we were able to make a massive impact, make them feel embraced and above all that no matter what or how we letting them know we will always find a way to be the first to arrive.
Thanks to all the donors who contributed to this massive distribution of food boxes that we will continue to carry out in the coming months.
No matter what there are always ways and means to make others feel that someone will support them.Attachments:
