MEP plans on taking action by assisting those impacted by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. However, we cannot do it without your help!
Our latest resiliency initiative includes delivering 10,000 solar battery packs to many affected by hurricane Maria. As cellular service returns, residents throughout the island(s) need a renewable, dependable source of energy to charge their phones and other portable devices. Reconnect online with worried loved ones. Stay up-to-date with evolving recovery information and report dangerous conditions.
We hope to raise $150,000 AS SOON AS POSSIBLE to help with the Hurricane Relief efforts. This is not possible without your generosity and donations. Please consider donating above or on our home page. Thank You!
