after hurricane maria, We HAD 6 MISSIONS PROVIDING disaster-relief to the Deaf/HH Community in Puerto Rico
Since October 2017, our team has supplied the Deaf/HH in over two dozen regions of the island with light and water filtration. On foot and person-to-person. We started as First-Responders supported by an aggressive community of donors, we then partnered with @rocksteadyforlife, @wavesforwater, @harper4humanity, @mpowerdinc on the ground and with love from @redbull. Finally, with the incredible contribution made by @randomactsorg, we were equipped to respond effectively to the 2018 hurricane season. We returned to the impacted remote areas to provide for those still living in the dark and without access to clean water. We welcomed @pr_broll @mcqueen_rob, @jorgegquintana, @aydin_vim and @mas_sordos the newest additions of our frontlines and with one goal in mind so that together we can be greater. Our Regional Director Meral Aydin works closely with Aslin Diaz who continues to distribute supplies.
Our Frontlines team consists of those individuals working at the core of the mission. They can be found on the ground or behind-the-scenes.
Whether on the ground or building the A-Team, Angela works to ensure productivity, efficiency and effectiveness during each of our six missions to PR.
Adriana was the first to volunteer on our initial disaster-recovery (mission one) in PR, ensuring that the work on the front-end had been accounted for on the back-end.
Ground members are crucial to the success of each mission. Edwin and Sel have navigated over 2 dozen regions of Puerto Rico searching for Deaf/HH individuals and facilitating disaster-relief supplies.
