PUERTO RICO IS COMPLETELY DESTROYED!!!! PLEASE HELP!!!! 💔 🇵🇷 🚨 🇵🇷 💔

Our little island of Puerto Rico has been hit extremely hard by Hurricane María. The destruction has been catastrophic. The Island is now considered a disaster zone.

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico and this situation hurts deeply. My fellow Puerto Ricans in the island are suffering greatly. 100% of the island is without power and 90% without drinkable water. The infrastructure of the island is completely destroyed. Hospitals and government offices unable to function and there is no ongoing communication between cities. Many bridges have been torn down and rivers overflown. Thousands of people have lost their homes due to flooding and some were even rescued from roofs.

Just a few days ago, the Puerto Ricans of the island were in their boats helping and rescuing people from the neighboring Virgin Islands, St Marteen, and BVIs. Today they are the ones in need of rescuing. I kindly ask to please consider donating to the organizations working hard to help!!

It will be a long time before Puerto Rico goes back to its original state. Your help is greatly needed!!!! Thank you!!!
