List of ways to help from activist Rosa Clemente:

Puerto Rico Needs You –

The damage in Puerto Rico is catastrophic, many of us are still waiting to hear from family members, food is running out, access to clean water is almost non existent and those on dialysis and dependent on insulin are on the brink.

The Atlantic article and the pics are devastating, but I think the pictures are the best in terms of showing what has happened to Borinken (Puerto Rico).

I also will share some of the best organizations, I prefer people stay away from International NGO’s and Non-Profits and of course no Red Cross, below is the most comprehensive list that supports as we say “grassroots.”

Please please give something, anything.

Peace and love,
