Puerto Rico in crisis: How you can help

GETTYEEW Magazine News // Natural Disasters // Charity

Share There is a humanitarian crisis is Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria raked the island last week following a Category 4 storm that cut off electricity and communications island-wide.

The fierce storm left millions of U.S. citizens there without food, water and housing. They need our help—badly.

In Cataño, a small town near San Juan, about 60 percent of the population of 27,000 is now homeless, reports NPR. Bathrooms are flooded and non-functioning. Sewage is overflowing. Families are in the dark.

Authorities in Puerto Rico say there are more than 10,000 people in shelters across the island because their homes were destroyed by Hurricane Maria. FEMA and relief groups are delivering food, water and generators to the island, but in Cataño, residents told NPR, so far, no outside help has arrived.

To put numbers on it, authorities say more than 3.4 million U.S. citizens in the territory were still without adequate food, water and fuel. Officials said electrical power may not be fully restored for more than a month.

The top Republican leaders in Congress are promising help for devastated Puerto Rico. Speaker Paul Ryan said the $15 billion Congress passed early this month for hurricanes Harvey and Irma also applied to Puerto Rico.

It is the worst natural disaster the island has seen in nearly a century. Sixteen people have died as a result of the storm, according to the Associated Press, a number local officials expect to rise.

REUTERSThe island has virtually no running water. Around 80 percent of the island’s crops have been destroyed. Scores of Puerto Ricans are gathering around what’s left of the country’s cell towers, desperate for contact with loved ones.

Empowering Everyday Women Ministries, Inc. is supporting the recovery efforts and you can help too by donating directly to the following organizations:

Ask God to lead you as you look for ways to be a blessing to those in need.
