Note from Jessica Irizarry-Ramos, Chronic Disease Director for Puerto Rico

Thursday, October 5, 2017   (0 Comments)
Day 15 after Maria, and today is the first day I have access to internet. In my hometown there is no power, water, communication, or internet. I have to drive to a friend's house in another town to be able to connect. Situation in PR is heart breaking. I have been working non-stop in the emergency, visiting ERs, refugees and hospitals. Keep us in your prayers, it will take time to recover from this.
 
Thank you for writing, knowing there are lots of good people out there praying for us is comforting. I don't know when I will have communication again, but as soon as I do I will write to you. Right now we are slowly receiving help, but since there is almost no communication, distribution is really difficult.
 
Please let all the NACDD family know we are OK.
 
Abrazos,
 
Jessica
