Puerto Rico is in a state of crisis. In the wake of Hurricane Maria, mass flooding and destruction have put children throughout the island at risk.
The governor has warned that this is “the worst hurricane in a century,” and that rebuilding will be a tremendously difficult undertaking.
After mobilizing to get immediate critical support — Emergency Relief Kits — to the children of Puerto Rico, UNICEF is rushing shipments of fresh drinking water to families across the island.
UNICEF is a global leader in emergency response, last year reaching children in 344 humanitarian emergencies across 108 countries. We stand ready to provide aid before, during and after a crisis.
