Summary

This project will help stabilize vulnerable communities in Puerto Rico after surviving hurricanes, earthquakes, the pandemic, and the island's infrastructure fragility. We respond immediately to the recovery efforts after emergencies, devastation, and urgent needs caused by the mentioned factors. Puerto Rico has become more vulnerable than ever, and populations such as homeless people and older adults need a support network to overcome such hardships. We are here to fulfill their unmet needs!

Challenge

The Island of Puerto Rico has been in a virtual state of emergency for the past six years. The impact hurricanes (Maria and Fiona), earthquakes, and the pandemic have had on the most vulnerable still lingers. It's perceived during Direct Relief's site visits as isolation, poverty-stricken communities, neglect, and loneliness of older adults and young families trying to survive amid economic uncertainty and lack of proper schooling for their children.

Solution

The project will make essential and health services available to reduce the disparity in access to health services and prevent health conditions that have become present during these dire times. Also, we will be able to make social, educational, and recreational services available to people from vulnerable communities in Puerto Rico who, after the hurricanes, earthquakes, and pandemic, are in vital need of improving their quality of life to achieve better emotional and physical health.

Long-Term Impact

This project proposes reducing health inequities among the people living in impoverished communities who are or have been homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless. Their risk factors are exacerbated due to living circumstances riddled with extreme poverty or long-term repercussions from being affected by natural disasters and the pandemic. This project aims to create a better social environment for these vulnerable people, promoting and providing resources to improve their lives.
