Hurricane Maria Response Update From Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico Reported by

It’s been six months since Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, and many are still struggling to recover. Convoy of Hope has since served more than 5 million meals to survivors across the island, in addition to hygiene products, water filters, and other necessary supplies. Convoy continues to provide long-term recovery.

One of the more than 95 locations across Puerto Rico that Convoy has served in response to the hurricane, is Villa Esparanza, which means Village of Hope. An estimated 175 homes — roughly 80% of the village — were damaged or destroyed. Currently Convoy is helping rebuild and repair homes around the village.

With the assistance of Convoy’s full time staff, the organization spent last week helping the village with rebuilding projects and repairs. For more updates on Convoy’s Hurricane Maria response, click here.
