UPDATE 2 on CDR Puerto Rico Response

January 15, 2018

Photos are of the activity coordinated by the Instituto Universitario para el Desarrollo de las Comunidades del RUM and celebrated at the Indieras (Indiera Baja, Indiera Alta e Indiera Fría) in the town of Maricao, Puerto Rico where distribution solar lights and supplies took place.  The activity ran from 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm and we impacted around 300 families.

We are making progress in our recovery efforts in Puerto Rico. Two shipments of disaster relief and recovery supplies have shipped. However, a third of the Island is still without power and additional urgently needed supplies need to be shipped. We have on hand enough needed supplies to fill a shipping container.  However, we are in need of funds to pay for the shipping fees.  Please prayerfully consider making a generous contribution today.

Your prayers and donations of funds and time help save lives.
