We have established an Agriculture Farm Fund with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the farmers.
•Our goal is to raise one million dollars to aid our farmers, by April 30th, 2019. •One year later, we hope to take a group of donors to tour the farms and view the progress. •Our focus is to have stateside farmers, agricultural suppliers, and nurseries donate fully grown fruits trees, coffee, bananas, plantain, pineapple, mangos, passion fruit, and much more to jump-start the rehabilitation of the farms.
Please make a donation, by visiting our website via PayPal Charities.
On September 20-21, 2017, Puerto Rico was destroyed by Hurricane Maria. Maria further devastated the island following Hurricane Irma two weeks before. There are three million Puerto Rican's living on the island that are suffering from a lack of power, water, and resources.
The island’s agricultural community in particular, has been decimated with an estimated destruction of 80 % (percent) of Puerto Rico’s crops – an estimated $780 million dollars in damages. In the past 12 years, the Puerto Rican Chamber of Commerce of Florida, has been dedicated to developing the export of products from small agricultural farms in Puerto Rico, to Florida. After Maria’s tragic aftermath, we are now mobilizing to help those same farmers.
On February 3rd 2018, at the University of Utuado , Puerto Rico 25 small farmers received mini-grants and seeds. We also had present Elda Deverie from Bags of Love and USDA Carlos Suarez with many other caring people.
