Hurricane Maria had sustained winds of 155 mph as it made landfall causing widespread devastation in Puerto Rico as a Category 4 storm. Home to over 3 million people, Puerto Rico is in dire need of emergency assistance. World Vision will be responding to the needs of the most vulnerable families through our partnerships with local churches. With our expertise in disaster relief, and the churches deep understanding of their communities, we work together to equip them to provide for the unique needs of Puerto Ricans through each stage of recovery and rebuilding, starting with emergency supplies such as:
- Food and water
- Temporary shelter
- Psychological first aid
- Malaria and waterborne disease awareness and prevention
- Child Protection activities
- Hygiene kits with soap, shampoo, and diapers
- And more
We’re also responding to the needs in the Dominican Republic where thousands of people have been displaced from their homes due to flooding from Maria. Please join us in prayer and know that your gift will help provide urgent relief and long-term recovery to the most vulnerable families in the worst-hit areas.
90% of your donation will go directly to help those impacted by Hurricane Maria. Please know, after carefully managing all donations, we will report back on your impact.
At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in need.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
