Hurricane Maria has devastated Puerto Rico
Children are the most vulnerable population when disaster strikes. For young infants and children, who depend upon a supply of diapers for basic sanitation and hygiene, Hurricane Maria has been exceptionally devastating. Inadequate or no diapers, especially in times of stress, can lead to significant negative health consequences.
The Puerto Rico Diaper Bank will provide long term relief and recovery
Until now, Puerto Rico has not had it's own diaper bank. The Puerto Rico Diaper Bank will collect, store, and distribute both diapers and feminine hygiene items (cloth & disposable) through a trusted network of partner agencies, one in each of Puerto Rico's 78 cities.
These items will be provided to struggling, low income individuals and families, to help lift them out of poverty and encourage self-sufficiency. By meeting basic needs, families will be able to focus on long term relief, recovery, and rebuilding- all steps setting them up for future success.
By donating as little as $10, you will help children survive and thrive!
As these children have their diapering needs solved, they are able to focus on other basic needs as part of recovery and rebuilding. All these steps combined help set these children and their families up for long term success.
