HELP THE PUNTA SANTIAGO COMMUNITY AND MONKEY ISLAND REBUILD THEIR LIVES
Punta Santiago was arguably one of the hardest hit communities when Puerto Rico was ravaged by Hurricane Maria. The combination of storm surge, sewage and torrential rain destroyed thousands of homes and everything in and around them. The storm also devastated most of the residents' opportunities to make a living. Adding insult to injury, this community still has no power, and the re-establishment of the power is not expected until late spring or early summer! And yet, despite the daily challenges of gathering food, water and building materials for themselves, the people of Punta Santiago have never ceased to care for the over 1,500 monkeys on Monkey Island!
