Video: Puerto Rico Rising

1 December 2017 — Vimeo

On September 20, 2017, Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico. A category 4 storm, it was the strongest hurricane to hit the island in almost a century.

Now, the people of Puerto Rico are hungry, homeless and dying. Many towns lack access to clean water, communication and transportation. And the mainstream news media has all but neglected the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico. At the same time, relief for Puerto Ricans has been slow and insufficient.
