INNOVATIVE RESILIENCE UTUADO
In Utuado, an area of Puerto Rico where more than 55% of the population lives in poverty, we are providing free satellite internet connectivity, to support the public health medical clinic CSM. The program has provided computers and skill-building workshops, which are available free to the community. The CSM was instrumental in saving lives after hurricane Maria. Their leadership and doctors walked to remote houses to check on elderly and other residents cut off from flooding, which washed away 15 bridges in the area. The technology provided through the program increases the ability of this remarkable team to respond to an emergency and save lives.
