A series of powerful earthquakes, the most damaging on January 7 and the most recent on January 11, have killed one, injured several, and caused significant destruction and disruptions in power and other services on the island of Puerto Rico.
In response to this latest calamity to hit the island, the UCC has dispatched funds to Global Ministries partner IEUPR (Iglesia Evangelica Unida de Puerto Rico) to assist with urgent needs. In addition, Disaster Ministries is issuing an emergency $250,000 appeal to assist the people of the island.
The Pension Boards, whose members include clergy and lay workers in Puerto Rico, has provided $15,000 in direct assistance to IEUPR and is sending more than 500 emergency backpacks to the staff at Ryder Memorial Hospital in Humacao, P.R.
PBUCC supports the UCC's disaster relief efforts and encourages you to join us in giving to help those in need following this disaster.
