Help for Puerto Rico

Organizations to Donate to for Hurricane Relief in Puerto Rico.

This list is pulled from a document compiled by Dr. Vanessa Díaz, Cesar Chávez Postdoctoral Fellow at Dartmouth College and is circulating on social media.

Here’s a list of reputable organizations to donate funds to both off and on the island and information on local specific item donation efforts on the U.S. mainland. Volunteer opportunities for Relief Work in Puerto Rico are also here.

 

*NOTE: Efforts to get necessary goods to PR requires work off the island, which is why orgs on the mainland that consistently serve the island (like National Boricua Human Rights Network in Chicago) are so important to support. Also, if you’re interested in volunteering, please register for one of the orgs below rather than just showing up on the island. It is important that relief efforts are organized during these difficult times.

Maria Fund (by Taller Salud, the G8 of Caño Martín Peña, and other local, grassroots organizations):

Sustainable Farming Support: Organización Boricuá de Agricultura Ecológica de Puerto Rico

A 28-year-old grassroot organization that works and promotes agroecology within the food sovereignty struggle. Boricuá, is the official Chapter in Puerto Rico of the international peasant movement: La Vía Campesina (LVC)- Coordinadora Latinoamericana de Organizaciones del Campo (CLOC). Boricuá, is a network of peasants (campesinos/as), farmers, farm workers, educators and activists that are deeply involved in a national social justice movement that builds a sustainable agriculture platform for small and medium scale peasants and farmers. Recently hurricane María had a great impact in Puerto Rico. The country is completely classified as a disaster zone. All of the agriculture is gone. Even though ageoecology farms have been proven to be resilient, the impact of María was so strong that green landscapes and ecosystems in Puerto Rico are now brown with lots of fallen trees. So, we are asking anyone that can help to donate whatever you can to help our organization and peasant network bounce up again.

You can donate directly to the Organización Boricuá bank account, Banco Popular Account: #162039034 or by PayPal: [email protected]
