Supporting Alliance Française Puerto Rico

In the wake of an intense and devastating hurricane season, Puerto-Rico has been dramatically hit by two hurricanes within two weeks –Irma and Maria- that have desecrated the island and imposed dire conditions of life to its inhabitants: lack of water, electricity, gas, and communication networks. Although the Alliance Française of Puerto Rico has been lucky enough to claim minor material damage, it has had no electricity since September 6. This power outage is likely to last as the island network is badly damaged. The Alliance Française of Puerto Rico is struggling to restore its activities, and in order to do so, urgently needs to buy an electricity generator.

With the support of the Fondation Alliance Française in Paris and the Délégation Générale de l’Alliance Française in the United States the Alliance Française of New Orleans has offered to become the fiscal sponsor for the raising of funds for the Alliance Française of Puerto Rico. The Alliance Française of Puerto Rico is calling for your help in this time of crisis to ensure that it can continue its activities.

Supporting the community

As a non-profit Institution and Cultural Center, The Alliance Francaise is collaborating with local Associations to bring help to the community. For example, it is opening its facilities as a recollection center for canned food, flashlights, batteries, portable fans, water and redirecting them to communities in need or local efforts such as “Mano a Mano ayudando” a Puerto Rico, who are working on the preparation of hot meals and delivery to multiple communities. The Alliance through its European Film Festival will also start to provide free cultural activities to refugees, organizing movie nights in refugees’ centers around the island.
In order to continue to provide these services, you can provide a monetary donation to the Alliance Francaise for the purchase of food, batteries, flash/lights/lanterns/portable fans/personal solar panels and other basic supplies for communities in need.
