El Hogar El Pequeño Joshua
El Hogar El Pequeño Joshua is a nonprofit institution inaugurated in 1993 located in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. The home helps children with HIV/AIDS, women, drug users, and homeless and low income pregnant women. Most of the children cared for by El Pequeno Joshua have lost their mother due to death or drug use. The mission of El Pequeño Joshua (name given to him by the first child who came to the Home with his mother) is to help young children and their mothers recover and stay together following drug use.
The Priester Foundation
Dr. Sally Priester has been on 22 global medical relief missions. She has visited over 50 Municipalities here in Puerto Rico since Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Dr Priester recently founded her own foundation to continue her work. Until January of this year all of her relief work has been self funded. Since its inception she has distributed over 20 pallets of much needed medical supplies on the island. She was also awarded humanitarian of the year by the state capitol in Puerto Rico.
Off Grid Relief
Off Grid Relief is one of several grassroots organizations that is addressing the electrical grid problems caused by old infrastructure and the hurricane season of 2017. Their goal is to provide electricity to parts of the island that will not be restored anytime soon. Luc Reynaud put together an island-wide effort to raise money to support this effort. The result is this video. Over the following 3 months, more than 100 Puerto Ricans from all around the island contributed to the writing, recording, and production of the song.
World Central Kitchen by José Andrés
José Andrés founded World Central Kitchen after the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti with the belief that food can be an agent of change. The organization has expanded globally and has developed into a group of celebrity chefs creating smart solutions to hunger and poverty. World Central Kitchen has made an incredible impact in Puerto Rico following hurricane Maria. To date, World Central Kitchen has served over 2 million meals in over 70 locations across Puerto Rico.
