After Hurricane Maria

Town of Morovis, Puerto Rico

October 18, 2017

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.

Everything is Connected.

Everyone Plays a Part.

July 31, 2016

It’s no secret that the modern United States is lacking in its sense of community.

I would’ve said it was something I would take out from time to time to mend a seam, sew a bag, or stitch a headband.
