Puerto Rico in a state of crisis. In the wake of Hurricane Maria, mass flooding and destruction have put children throughout the island at risk.
The entire island, home to 3.4 million, is without power. At least 13 people have died. The governor has warned the world that this is “the worst hurricane in a century,” and that rebuilding will be a tremendously difficult undertaking.
Latinopia’s regular contributors José M. Umpierre and José Muratti Toro have been affected, although we have yet to hear from them because of the lack of power throughout the island. We are particularly concerned about the children of Puerto Rico and thus are posting this call for donations to the UNICEF hurricane relief effort.
We urge you to contribute to the Hurricane relief effort on the island. 90% of contributions to the UNICEF fund will go directly to helping children.
