Florida leaders offer help to Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico after being heavily hit by the deadly storm

Miami, Florida – Help is on the way to residents in Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic who have been impacted by Hurricane Fiona thanks to the efforts of volunteers in South Florida.

In the next twenty-four hours, the Global Empowerment Mission (GEM) will send out the first shipment of family essential packages they have assembled.

Emily Fullmer, the Chief Operating Officer of the Global Empowerment Mission, stated that “we fortified partnerships during our involvement with Hurricane Maria so that allows us to act much more swiftly and quicker with this disaster.” As a result, “we’ll move in faster than we could have then and get goods into the hands of people in all areas of Puerto Rico,” Fullmer said. “We fortified partnerships during our involvement with Hurricane Maria so that allows us to act much more swiftly and quicker with this disaster.”

In addition, three members of the Urban Search and Rescue team from Miami-Dade Fire Rescue have been sent to Puerto Rico to assist with the relief efforts. This group’s primary focus will be assisting local responders with the integration of all search and rescue teams as well as logistics.

Puerto Ricans who live in South Florida are keeping a careful watch on how Hurricane Fiona will affect the region.

According to what they said in an interview with NBC 6, they are especially concerned about the power outages because many people were without electricity for months during Hurricane Maria.

“Concerns have been raised concerning my dad. He served in the military for a long time and is now 92 years old. And of all the places, he’s currently in Ponce, “Luis de Rosa, President of the South Florida Puerto Rican Chamber of Commerce, was quoted as saying this.

Donations can be dropped off to the Global Empowerment Mission’s warehouse, which is located at 1810 NW 94th Avenue in Doral, Florida.

At this time, members of GEM say that the population on both islands will most likely require water purification systems and generators.
