AMURT & AMURTEL distributed basic supplies to people affected by Hurricane Maria near Anasco town on the western coast of Puerto Rico. We worked in collaboration with the University of Puerto Rico (Mayaguez) and a local organization, Brigada Solidaria del Oeste.
AMURT has been active in Lebanon since 2012 supporting Syrian refugees and vulnerable Lebanese host communities. Since 2015 the focus has been creating a pathway to education, providing psycho-social support and giving youth a chance for self-expression and supporting their struggle for livelihoods.
Harvey began as a major category four hurricane - the first to make landfall in the US in 12 years. It triggered flooding and many areas could be uninhabitable for months. AMURT has volunteers in the area and are appealing for cash donations.
