Five years after Hurricanes Maria and Irma devastated Puerto Rico, Hurricane Fiona unleashed a series of flooding and power outages across the island. IAM members and their families need your help to recover and overcome yet another natural disaster.
“As our Sisters and Brothers in Puerto Rico face catastrophic damages caused by Hurricane Fiona, the IAM is ready to support those who have been affected,” said IAM Southern Territory General Vice President Rickey Wallace. “We pray for the wellbeing of our members and stand in solidarity with all the affected families.”
The Disaster Relief Fund is able to provide immediate financial assistance to IAM members impacted by natural disasters. The IAM is often there before most monetary relief efforts can react.
All the donations made will be directly distributed to those who need it.
