If you’re just listening to what the federal government is saying, you might be under the impression that relief in Puerto Rico is going well.
Puerto Rico recently experienced complete devastation at the hands of Hurricane Maria. Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States, and the people who live there are full American citizens. Unlike the responses to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma on the mainland U.S., relief efforts have been slow and ineffective. Some of the help we’re told is ongoing includes providing food to families affected and beginning to rebuild. But what’s really happening?
A team of twelve veterans is volunteering their time to help Puerto Rico, and they have a lot to say about what they’re seeing on the ground.
From food quantities to quality, these veterans are wondering what the holdup is when it comes to helping the Puerto Ricans they see every day.
It’s important that we know what’s actually happening in Puerto Rico so we can best help our fellow citizens. If you want to follow what this team of veterans is doing each day, @Lucian on Twitter is updating regularly.
