After Hurricane Maria

Town of Morovis, Puerto Rico

October 18, 2017 - Puerto Rico

Four weeks after Hurricane Maria made landfall, families are still living in shelters that have been set up in public schools. So many families have lost all that they own and have nowhere else to go. RMF has sent a team to bring some initial medical supplies, as well as analyze the situation and form local partnerships. To learn more about RMF’s proposed program, read more on our initiative page.

Meet Dr. Rodriguez, our contact in the town of Morovis. RMF’s Edwin knows him through family. He gladly shows us around.

RMF’s team visits a shelter in Morovis. This woman kindly allows us to photograph her and her husband.

Her husband has no legs. They lost everything in the storm.

“Welcome.” A converted classroom becomes a de facto room for those who have lost their homes.

A curious young boy plays with chains securing the door.

The boy’s mother, while telling us her story about losing their home and being out of work, rushes over to tend to her son.

Meet Dr. Alvarado, OB-GYN. She has been working not only in her own office, but also in the emergency clinic around the clock. The clinic has no electricity.

Dr. Alvarado’s office is about 90°F, with no ventilation. This is where she works all day with no light.
