San Juan, Puerto Rico, April 29, 2020 | Fundación Comunitaria de Puerto Rico (FCPR) announced today that become the fiscal sponsor of the multidisciplinary group Coalition of Wisdom COVID19 of Puerto Rico (COSACO).

The fiscal sponsorship will allow COSACO to receive financial donations from individuals and companies both in Puerto Rico and in the United States.
“In response to the pandemic, Fundación Comunitaria executes a community strategy for the prevention and containment of the spread of the coronavirus among the elderly population, through our community allies: community health clinics and grassroots organizations. Part of this prevention is achieved with truthful, punctual and accessible education, a goal that we share with COSACO”, said Dr. Nelson I. Colón Tarrats, President of the FCPR and philanthropic advisor to COSACO.
COSACO, led by Dr. Jaime Claudio, is made up of a group of health specialists who decided to organize after the arrival of COVID-19 on the island in order to provide educational information on how to deal individually and collectively with the challenges of this health crisis. COSACO becomes a public platform to bring the most accurate information to Puerto Rican families.
“COSACO is focused on adding our collaboration to the response to the pandemic through information that generates wise decisions for citizens. We have developed a series of tools to add this knowledge and bring it to Puerto Rico so that together we can save lives. As it arose as a solidarity effort, we are very excited to have the support of the Fundación Comunitaria, a non-profit organization with an impeccable philanthropic history. We are convinced that together we can make a difference, overcome this pandemic and emerge stronger as human beings and collaborators of this planet”, said Dr. Jaime Claudio, president of COSACO and professor of Medicine and Family at the University of Puerto Rico (UPR).
