This week, Hurricane Maria destroyed infrastructure and destabilized the lives of many vulnerable Caribbean people just days after Hurricane Irma hit. Puerto Rico and Mexico, specifically, got most of the brunt from the Category 4 storm. In light of the devastation, efforts are being made to help survivors rebuild their lives. Various campaigns have made getting involved easier than ever.
