It will be years before Puerto Rico is back to “normal” after the devastation of Hurricane Maria. Almost a year later, some parts of the island still don’t have adeqaute electricity. Some parts of the island doesn’t even have buildings for schools that start in less than 2 months.
Some local students from the area are doing what they can to help those in need. According to Fox 45, 16 students from East Asian Seventh Day Adventist Church left from BWI to help the island rebuild. Their goal is to help build a church and a school while they are there.
Some of these same students that are headed to Puerto Rico have been affected by the storm issues in Ellicott City so they can relate.
