Hurricane Maria was a large-scale natural disaster for which federal, state, and local governments were not prepared. However, many local communities in the US have come together to gather supplies and donations for Puerto Rico. Unfortunately, relief efforts have not been able to get those donations from the US to the most affected areas of Puerto Rico even weeks after Maria’s landfall. Given the level of destruction in the infrastructure, having a well-managed logistic plan for the delivery of supplies will continue to be one of the main challenges.
That’s why Contigo Puerto Rico’s main goal is to implement a logistic plan that connects donation centers to local communities in great need in Puerto Rico. We do this by identifying the main areas of need and by developing strategic partnerships to ensure an efficient flow of supplies.
