UMC Response in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria

When Hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico on Sept. 20, 2017, the island and its citizens were left devastated beyond anyone's anticipation. Since then, UMCOR has supported the REHACE project - a partnership with la Iglesia Metodista de Puerto Rico - dedicated to rebuilding the island's infrastructure through supply distribution, reconstruction, and rethinking the approach to disaster response. We visited a year after the storm to see these United Methodist efforts in progress.
