Nearly two months have passed since Hurricane Maria slammed into Puerto Rico, leaving thousands homeless and most of the island without electricity, water, communications, and basic services. International Medical Corps deployed disaster response experts to Puerto Rico in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Maria and remains there today, working with health clinics and communities to help them rebuild in the wake of this devastating storm.

While conditions have improved, some 66 percent of the island’s residents still remain without power.

“I read the papers a lot and I heard very, very little about what happened to this island…But this country has been devastated, and there are still thousands and thousands of people without homes, without clothes, without fresh water, or clean water, without roofs on their houses, those whose homes weren’t destroyed. The schools still aren’t open. There’s still no electricity. And I think a lot of work needs to be done to help them.” – Dr. Melinda Brecknell, a volunteer with International Medical Corps in Dominica
