Support the Martin Peña Relief Fund
After facing the devastation from the Fall, 2017 hurricanes, power loss, and destruction to homes for more than 26,000 residents of Caño Martín Peña, Puerto Rico, are in need of help.
Martin Pena Community Land Trust, the runner-up for the 2017 Fuller Challenge, recently launched a fundraising campaign aimed at rebuilding Caño Martín Peña, a flood-prone area of substandard housing. Residents are now working with engineers, architects, and volunteers to rebuild the neighborhood in a way that will reduce their vulnerability and ensure equitable development. The Caño Martín Peña Relief Fund was able to raise more than $55,000 for the residents of the communities. Money is being spent on buying construction materials and replacing furniture and and large appliances for those who have lost everything.
