Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief

“It has been very difficult. But thanks to God we are still alive and that’s what matters. We can let these material things go, but life, that’s something different.”

Zakat Foundation of America’s team of medical and disaster relief professionals just completed a weeklong aid distribution and medical effort in eight Puerto Rico communities that were hit hardest by the hurricane and remain underserved.

The seven-person team, including two RNs, delivered prepaid debit cards, safe water, water filters, food, lanterns, and offered free medical screening to needy victims of Hurricane Maria in CoamoArecibo,GuyamaBarranquitas, and Utuado, for American citizens still suffering aid deprivation a shocking three months after the Category 5 storm ripped the island.
