Hurricane Maria Relief Effort 

For over 24 hours we felt the effects of Hurricane Maria. Force of nature that we had not seen before. The storm hit us hard, but it never knocked us down. Now we are cleaning up, fixing houses, distributing water and food, making new friends, and collaborating with folks from all over the island and the United States. We have felt the love from within the island and from abroad. WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR ALL DONATIONS. Your caring has made many people smile, hug and some have cried of joy. Puerto Rico is like the tree that resists the storm, we are already putting out new leaves. #BorikenFlorece

Thank You

La Briagada Solidaria del Oeste

We want to express our gratitude

We have to take a moment to thank everyone for their donations and fundraising efforts around the world. From Spain, Israel, Germany, France, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Colombia and multiple locations in the United States folks have reached out and supported the work we are doing. As soon as the funds come in we make sure to spend as efficiently as possible.

Today we confirmed our order of 1,200 sawyer bucket filters, 1,200 buckets from Don Benja to install the filters and an additional 700 Luci solar lamps. We are ordering another 200 tarps and purchasing two 275 gallon IBC units to create our Boriken "Watta" Filtration System. This in addition to all the food, medical and other donations being sent directly to the Brigada Solidaria del Oeste.

As we move forward we intend to provide small construction and renovation grants to the most needy of the communities in the west and to provide small grants to other organizations doing the work of hurricane relief on the West Coast of the island.
