For SBP's project lead Nina, the hardest part of Hurricane Maria aftermath has been all the close family and friends that have left the island looking for new opportunities. “My brother is one of them. I really miss him a lot." Nina hopes her work will help to bring people back home.

Volunteer Coordinators Noemi & Christopher focus on the positive things after the Hurricane. “There has been an increase in nonprofits and community groups to help recovery efforts. I’m really proud to be part of one”, says Christopher. They are working hard on bringing volunteers on-board.

After experiencing Maria’s landfall inside a bathroom with his girlfriend’s family, Arturo started working with organizations helping farmers recover around the island. Now as construction coordinator, he jokes that he’s doing thing that he never imagined doing, like finances, invoice coding and doing purchase orders. “I understand it’s really necessary to do these things properly so the organization is able to function, so I don’t mind learning all these new things.”

“The hardest part of Maria was hearing my mother, who was out of the country, calling me on the phone worried and asking me about the hurricane. I didn’t want her to be worried so I said everything’s fine, but I was really afraid." - Alondra, SBP project lead

SBP Puerto Rico gathered this morning to commemorate the 1-year anniversary of Hurricane Maria - sharing painful stories and hardships and acknowledging the positive strides being made by those willing to help. #puertoricostrong .
