Hello Jeff ... I want to
warn people NOT to send food or bottled water to Puerto Rico.
Authorities from the various charities have found that MASSIVE
amounts of food meals and bottled water have been found in land
fills in Puerto Rico.
A majority of Puerto Ricans are on US welfare. The country
looks like it did the day after Maria hit. Trees, poles and
debris are still laying where they fell during the hurricane.
Evidently the local people do not want to work clearing the debris.
So clean up is at a stand still waiting for workers from the US to
arrive and clean their country.
Sadly, 22% of victims of Hurricane Sandy that hit NY and NJ
extremely hard, are still not back in their homes. Insurance
just did not pay enough to finish making homes livable or rebuilt.
If people want to donate to hurricane relief then give to Hurricane
Sandy relief or give to Texas/Louisiana relief or Florida relief.
Why send food, water or money to people who do not appreciate it and
the food and water ends up in land fills.
I am afraid that Puerto Rico will end up like Haiti after the
Earthquake 2010. Seven years after that quake people are still
living in tent cities.
The US citizens have enough to do on limited budgets and giving food
and water to people who will throw it into land fills is the wrong
way to spend it.
