How Faith-based organizations are helping in Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is on the brink of a humanitarian crisis, economies across the Caribbean are on life support, and dozens of people are dead. First, Puerto Rico suffered from Hurricane Irma, and after that Hurricane Maria gave another blow to an island that was already suffering from a severe economic recession. Many parts of Puerto Rico are still without power, and some areas have been deprived of every comfort. People are homeless, and many Puerto Ricans are fleeing the country and end up in Florida. Puerto Rico is a US terrority, and its citizens are US citizens.

Puerto Rico needs immediate and long-term help. There are some international faith-based organizations that are helping those in need.

Working along with these local charities and organizations are also a few faith-based organizations (FBOs) to help Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. Those are listed below.
