Puerto Rico Post Disaster

 
 

A goal of Storm Aid is to play a major role in the redevelopment of Puerto Rico, by repairing and upgrading the island’s infrastructure, including roads, sources of clean water, power systems, housing, agriculture and food supply. To do so, Storm Aid is partnering with international problem solvers, Global Design, LLC, who will install mobile production systems for drinking water, as well as ten (10) multi-purpose, 2.5 Mega-Watt mobile power generation systems, to be placed in strategic locations on the various islands.

Along with desalinization efforts, the wells will be developed on specific properties that will help supply water for the main and neighboring islands. In order to address environmental issues and much of the destruction created by the storms, plans include the upgrading of the energy supply, in part, through “waste to energy conversion,” which generates grid power, eliminates waste removal and landfills, and lowers the cost of energy, all while providing the community with skilled and unskilled jobs.

Extracting gases from landfills creates energy, resulting in an environmental uplift for Puerto Rico, by having alternative, methane-rich LFG (land-fill-gas) energy, to replace more expensive natural gas. On the same properties, next to existing Municipal Solid Waste to Energy Plants, Aquaponics systems will be installed, to farm fish, vegetables and algae that will contribute to organic food security. The Aquaponic systems will augment the yield of local farmers and fisherman in such a way, that they will enjoy enhanced income, instead of predatory competition.

Low cost, rapidly constructed water-resistant, multi-room, spherical housing capable of withstanding winds of over 220 mph, will also be introduced, so as to survive future storms with minimum damage. By cooperating with various agencies and local governments, the above strategy simultaneously improves on infrastructure, energy, water, food and housing. This process, which includes major international financing, will allow Storm Aid, Global Design, LLC and their partners, through progressive, people friendly and environmentally friendly programs and solutions, to play a major role in facilitating the recovery of victims and the rebuilding of communities, that have suffered the devastating consequences of major storms, that we all know, will continue to occur in the U.S., the Caribbean, as well as throughout the world.

The Beneficiaries

The beneficiaries of Storm Aid will primarily be the victims of hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria, and 2018, Florence and Michael. Storm Aid is a Florida nonprofit corporation, with its partners, Global Empowerment Mission, Third Wave Volunteers and WaterStep. These charities will serve as a pass-through to other approved and designated nonprofit recipients and beneficiaries with proven teams already on the ground. Storm Aid will also serve as a collector of charitably donated and contributed funds.

The recipients of such funds will be established tax-exempt humanitarian organizations that are proven, are active, and capable of distributing the emergency goods and services, including food, water, shelter and medical care to the hurricane victims. Storm Aid will assemble a committee that utilizes charity watchdog groups such as the BBB Wise Giving Alliance, Charity Navigator and CharityWatch, all of whom evaluate charities on their many essential factors, including how much donated money is used for emergency relief, as opposed to fundraising and administrative expenses. Storm Aid is keen on selecting vetted local charities that are in a much better position to aid their communities, than are outside organizations. Storm Aid is also committed to a policy of minimum administrative costs of under 10%, disbursing the majority of funds to people who have been most hard hit and remain in dire need of emergency relief. 

Potential Texas charities include: Greater Houston Community Foundation, Houston Food Bank, United Way of Greater Houston, South Texas Blood and Tissue Center, Food Bank of Corpus Christi, Houston Humane Society, San Antonio Humane Society, and Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. Potential Florida charities include: Volunteer Florida, Habitat for Humanity of Jacksonville, Boca Helping Hands,

Heart of Florida United Way, Neighborhood Health Clinic, All Faiths Food Bank, Dan Marino Foundation, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, and the Women's Fund of Miami-Dade. Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands include Catholic Relief Services, Save the Children, UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund, and Unidos Por Puerto Rico. 

Additional to-be-named charities on the ground in the Florida panhandle, Georgia, North and South Carolina, will also be supported, following the recent damage caused by catastrophic Hurricanes Florence and Michael, (September / October 2018). In addition to the devastation to communities and tragic loss of life, the damages wrought by the storms will reach tens of billions of dollars, or higher.
