With Puerto Rico’s electrical grid destroyed by Hurricane Maria on Sept. 20, the U.S. territory’s 3.4 million people are lacking the electricity required for critical needs such as water and refrigeration for food.
“The greatest need now in Puerto Rico, and it seems it will be like that for a while, is for gas-powered generators,” a Latin American representative of Christian Aid Mission said.
Christian Aid Mission has arranged for an 80-foot boat to transport generators from Miami to Puerto Rico but needs funds to purchase them.
A trusted network of pastors on the main island will distribute as many gas-powered generators as donors can supply to desperate residents. Each generator costs $600.
