Puerto Rico Relief and Recovery Project
March & April, 2018

Immediately after Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico in September 2017, Iglesia Alianza Cristiana y Misionera de Santurce, a small congregation of 40 northeast of the capital of San Juan and near the coast responded to help when others could not. In spite of suffering their own losses, they started reaching out to the suffering people of Santurce by providing meals, temporary shelter in the damanged church building and ensuring that local homeless people were cared for. With other local churches they partnered to distribute food, water and the tarps people needed for temporary roofs on what was left of their homes.

The cement building out of which they’ve helped others withstood the storm but the roof was seriously damaged preventing use of the upper two floors. In the months since, further water damage has penetrated even to the lowest occupied level. Repairs to the roof and structure are estimated at:

$15,000 Roof
$5,000 Interior structure
$3,000 Exterior structure
$23,000 Total

As the people of Santurce continue to recover to this day, Iglesia Alianza Cristiana y Misionera de Santurce continues to provide a feeding and food distribution program that runs monthly at of cost of $1,500 per month. They would provide this service more frequently to their neighbors and community if funding was available.
