Since the earthquake struck, Direct Relief has sent 38 shipments of specifically requested medicine and medical supplies to 6 different recipients on the island. Direct Relief’s Puerto Rico staff has been visiting the community health centers and shelters with teams of doctors and psychologists, assessing needs and helping to provide the supplies and infrastructure for people to get the medical care they need right now. Additionally, Direct Relief have been distributing Luci lights to the local residents.

How you can help
There are many ways to help out, from donating to your nonprofit of choice, to volunteering on the ground, to purchasing a Give Luci for only $10. Because they’re waterproof, solar, durable and float, Luci lights fulfill a specific need for those affected by natural disasters.
We are also offering special pricing for orders of at least 12 lights (EMRG and Pro Series). These lights - unlike Give purchases - will be sent to you directly. Use code RELIEF4PR for 40% off. Simply add 12 units or more of EMRG and / or Pro Series to your cart and apply the code at checkout.
If you work with NGOs or relief organizations and are interested in placing a larger order, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’d like give a special thank you to all of the individuals who have reached out to us to volunteer their time and efforts to bring these lights to those in need! Scroll down to keep up-to-date with our progress.
