Insulin Shortage In Puerto Rico

Hurricane Maria came in switftly and with no regard for humanity. HumanaTeen also launched quickly and swiftly ahead of schedule with it’s focus and eyes turned to the devastation and victims in Puerto Rico.

OUR CAUSES

Our very first project – Insulin to Puerto Rico. At the time of the launch, it had been a month since hurricane Maria hit. The majority of the island still had no power. No power meant that there was nowhere to store insulin – there would be many in need. Supplies had been sitting at airports and docks in the heat. Heat and insulin do not mix, the insulin becomes ineffective! /vc_column_text]

MEET OUR VOLUNTEERS

We got to work with our volunteers – spreading the word, asking for others to support our cause. Within two weeks time a jet was donated that had clearance to reach Puerto Rico and provide relief. Within two weeks we raised $5,000 and sent insulin and supplies on the donated air ambulance to deliver insulin directly to hospitals! >vc_column_text]
