Sixteen non-profits organizations have received grants that will allow them to work closely with their communities in providing educational, preventive and health services regarding COVID-19 in vulnerable communities around the island. The total amount of the grants is $367,477.10.
These organizations will execute Fundación Comunitaria de Puerto Rico strategy to activate the community to address the elderly, population that is at most risk of death especially those older than 70 years old. In Puerto Rico, 21% of the population is 65 years or older, many living under health, economic and social vulnerability. Also, three of the non-profits will provide housing services to families affected by the earthquakes.
We thanks our donors for their kind support: AMGEN Foundation, Chicago Community Trust, Central Florida Foundation, The Prospect Hill Foundation, Miranda Foundation, individuals through our crowdfunding in Global Giving, and Panamerican Group and Atlantic College (both are under COSACO Fiscal Sponsorship).
