Summary

In Loiza there are 100+ homes with blue tarps as ceilings, in state of vulnerability and uninhabited by families who didn't have the means to repair them. 5 years after the severe political disaster following the hurricane, we are still working to see our communities recover. Your donation will help us keep empowering and helping sustain women and families by providing access to preparation materials, essential items, food, water, community vegetable gardens, micro-business trainings and more!

Challenge

Puerto Rico is going through a slow recovery after the passing of hurricanes Irma and Maria, the most devastating that have impacted our archipelago. It wreaked our housing, infrastructure, agriculture, physical and mental health. The political disaster that followed resulted in the deaths of more than 4,000 people. Still a surprising number of our houses have blue tarps instead of roofs, are in a state of vulnerability and are uninhabited by families who did not have the means to repair them.

Solution

Taller Salud, since the impact of these atmospheric phenomena, have helped in the survival, resilience and recovery of the communities of Loiza. Unlike our government, 5 years after Maria, we are continually working with the same or greater strength to continue fighting for a fair recovery, decent housing, mitigation, and climate justice in our country. We reject the idea that preparedness is an individual matter and affirm that it is a collective duty.

Long-Term Impact

We will impact 26,000 families from Loiza with our Community and Leadership Initiative so they can enjoy an integral wellbeing.
