It's been a week since Hurricane Fiona hit Puerto Rico. Data suggests that 900,000 Puerto Ricans are still without power and water due to the damage. On top of that, a multibillion-dollar economic disaster. Before Hurricane Fiona, Puerto Rico was still recovering from the 100 billion-dollar worth of damages caused by 2017's Hurricane Maria. In times of crisis, you can help more than you think.

Here are two ways you can help now

Donate emergency essentials such as first-aid kits, water filters, solar lamps, and water purification tablets to Puerto Rican mutual-aid group Brigada Solidaria del Oeste.

Help Global Giving raise $1,000,000 for its Hurricane Fiona Relief Fund. The funds will provide survivors with immediate needs, including food, shelter, water, hygiene products, and more.
