The aftermath of hurricanes María and Irma was not only a humanitarian crisis but an economic one as well. The Foundation set aside some funds to aid those who had lost their business as a consequence of the hurricane.
One of the grants the Foundation made was for an individual who lost his entire farm. He ran one of the first aquaponic farms in Puerto Rico and was in Culebra and was part of the agricultural movement of the island. After the hurricane he lost all of his fish and growing beds to a massive landslide and lost his house as well. The Foundation provided a grant to assist the family in their move to the United States. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
