#puertorico🇵🇷 For the past couple of years I’ve had the privilege and honor of being a global ambassador for the international medical corps. They are first responders providing urgent medical care in disaster situations around the world. They do amazing work, helping rebuild, bringing much needed medical supplies, training and support to where it’s needed most. Six months after hurricane Maria only metro areas have electricity with any consistency and on the inside of the island there’s still no electricity at all. And yet, the resilience these people is incredible. Everywhere I go there are local leaders stepping up and creating meaningful community through the community health clinics or la Leche leagues or support groups and nutritional education for young moms. International medical corps is supporting the entire web of health clinics across the island build their capacity and infrastructure and ensure they will be ready to respond to the next storm since the local communities are still struggling to get consistent electricity and water. www.
