Update #4

Friends, COVID19 has attacked Puerto Ricans more severely than in many other places in the world.

After more than 8 weeks of a required shutdown, the virus has ravaged Puerto Rico’s economy which was already in a critical state. Thousands of Puerto Ricans have lost their jobs and the means to make a living and feed their families. In a country where the “official” poverty rate is 43%, this blow has been catastrophic.

To exacerbate this, on May 2nd, Puerto Rico was hit again by another destructive natural disaster – a 5.5 earthquake. This disaster caused additional damage to an already devastated infrastructure which has been pounded by two historic hurricanes (Irma and Maria), a January 2020 6.4 earthquake, and a record number of aftershocks.

At PRxPR we have always been committed to providing rescue aid to those most affected while helping communities to resiliently rebuild. The urgency now is to provide immediate RELIEF.

Effective immediately, PRxPR is directing 100% of donations to provide FOOD to COVID19 and earthquake victims directly. Our focus is to provide meals, groceries, clean water, food and essential relief items to the most vulnerable populations – with our priorities being elders and children.

Finally, a reminder that PRxPR is the only NO OVERHEAD RELIEF FUND operating in the Island. 100% of your donations go DIRECTLY to communities in need. And uniquely, we do not work, deal, engage nor participate in any government programs – strictly NO GOVERNMENT engagement of any kind. You have been most generous supporting Puerto Rico in the past and we are most grateful for it. But it has never been more important for us to count on your generosity. Please help us help by donating at https://www.fundly.com/prxpr.

Thank you,

Carmen Báez

Update #2

Friends,

A few days ago, the unthinkable happened. Puerto Rico was hit again by a devastating natural disaster on May 2nd, A 5.5 earthquake. Adding catastrophic results to the 6.4 earthquake on Jan 7th that left thousands homeless, damaged critical infrastructure and again has paralyzed a country which had barely recovered from the historic hurricane just 2 years ago.

As of this writing, more than half of the island is without power and over 300,000 citizens are without water. In the southwest region, people are sleeping in parking lots and shelters are filling to capacity. All 500+ public schools on the island are closed as they are not confirmed to be structurally safe. Many towns have been devastated by the event.

At PRxPR we remain committed to providing immediate relief aid to those most affected from natural disasters, while helping communities to resiliently rebuild.

Effective immediately, PRxPR is directing 100% of donations to help the earthquake victims directly. Our focus will be to provide water, food and essential relief items to the most vulnerable populations: our elderly and children.

You have been most generous supporting Puerto Rico in the past and we are most grateful for it. If you would like to join us again in this new effort, you can do so by donating at https://www.fundly.com/prxpr.

Thank you for helping us help the people of Puerto Rico.
