Mercy Corps Mounts Relief and Recovery Response in Puerto Rico

United States

October 3, 2017

Following Hurricane Maria, Mercy Corps is mounting a response to support relief and recovery efforts in Puerto Rico. We have deployed a team to Puerto Rico to see how we can help local organizations working to deliver humanitarian assistance and start rebuilding the communities ravaged by the hurricane.

We anticipate providing emergency cash so people can buy what they need most and we are working as quickly as we can to lay the foundation for recovery. As we see elsewhere around the world, it will take a concerted effort by multiple organizations and the government to help Puerto Rico recover from this disaster. Puerto Ricans are inspiring us with their commitment to building back better than before the storm, and we are moved to bring our global experience, expertise and contacts to the recovery and rebuilding effort.
