We’ve walked this path before; Hurricanes Irma and Maria were devastating. With the help of so many, Puerto Rico and its partners showed strong resiliency and recovered. We feel emboldened by our experience in the face of this new adversity. We know what to do – we will help each other, we will work together, and we will recover. ¡Puerto Rico se levanta!
