The goal of the UNIDOS Disaster Relief and Recovery Program is to serve the immediate and long-term needs of families and communities in Puerto Rico. To do so, the Hispanic Federation has taken unprecedented action, helping to coordinate hundreds of donation drives in the U.S. mainland, distributing millions of pounds of food, water and essentials to those most affected by the storm, delivering emergency relief aid to over 40 hard-hit municipalities, and seeding an additional 3 million dollars to support emergency relief and recovery projects throughout Puerto Rico.

A Message from Lin-Manuel Miranda

OCTOBER 24, 2017

Thirty five days after Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, 85% of our American citizens on the island are still without power and most have no water. That’s why we continue to work hard to help Puerto Rico. In fact, over 100,000 of you, from every state and 23 countries have supported the Hispanic Federation Relief Effort.
