PROVIDING CRITICAL ACCESS TO SHELTER, FOOD, WATER, AND HEALTHCARE
After Hurricane Maria, Needs Soar
After being hit by Category 5 hurricanes with 160+ mph winds in September 2017, Vieques, Puerto Rico remains devastated. We are still finding people with life-threatening medical conditions and living in collapsed buildings. There is still no power, and extremely limited resources and communication. We need your help to expand our capacity for helping people, now that the need is greater than ever.
Help Rebuild the COREFI Food Bank
Our Food Bank and storage area was condemned after the storm. We are in the process of securing a new space, but need industrial shelving, supplies, and volunteer help to get a our new Food Bank back in service.
COREFI Needs a Truck. And Drivers!
We are in urgent need of a large vehicle to go to the main island for supplies. Donate to our food, fuel, and vehicle fund so that we can continue to provide lifesaving supplies.
We need medical aid workers, chain-saw operators, builders, and the help of all of those that want to lift up the lives of our citizens in Vieques. Since communications are currently down, we hold weekly volunteer meetings in the Plaza at Kiosko at 10:30am on Wednesdays. Please join us!
Handling Today’s Crisis:
Our teams are currently going door-to-door in the wake of Hurricane Maria, helping families old and young face disaster, and bringing aid directly into our barrios.
WHO WE HELP
Dedicated to those who need it most.
Many on Vieques have no access to government help or assitance.
Our COREFI team assists the sick, elderly, and disabled. We go directly into our neighborhoods to find and lift up those in need, especially because they are often the most unseen.
