The ventilation system Good Samaritan Hospital in Aguadilla was severely damaged by Hurricane Maria. Currently, there is still no electricity for the hospital, no working generator, and no air conditioning or dehumidifier in a hot, humid climate. These conditions put the patients currently in this hospital at risk. Some of the most critical patients have been airlifted to the mainland, but there is still an urgent need for a functioning regional hospital.
We are especially looking for volunteers who can be in Ft. Lauderdale by Thursday evening for a flight to Puerto Rico on Friday morning, October 13.
If you have these skills to share, please email Billy Simmons at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your phone number in your email reply. He will respond in the evening after work. Those who will be joining our team in Puerto Rico, please contact and stay in touch with Billy.
