Puerto Rico Earthquake Emergency
On Jan 7, 2020 a 6.4 magnitude earthquake shook Puerto Rico, killing at least one man and injuring others. This comes after reports of multiple earthquakes hitting the island for the past few weeks, one of the greatest being the one on Jan 7. Hundreds of homes were damaged and the infrastructure is in ruins again. Power was cut from virtually the entire island.
Due to the heavy impact of Hurricane Maria in 2017, the island was already recovering slowly from the devastation. Now, this disaster will slow that recovery process even further.
Islamic Relief USA responded after Hurricane Maria in 2017 and 2018 giving necessary emergency aid like water and food supplies. And even this past year, we helped to rebuild homes that were damaged by the hurricane.
Now again, Puerto Rico needs your support. Donate now to help with recovery efforts.
