The natural disasters that have affected us in the last five years, such as hurricanes Irma and María, the earthquakes in the southern area, and this year’s hurricane, Fiona - in addition to the Covid-19 pandemic - have brought death, destruction, and hardship to the island. A reality from which we are just beginning to recover.
