Daddy Yankee Delivers Kits to Help Clear Storm Damage from Puerto Rico Homes

SAN JUAN – Reggaeton singer and music producer Daddy Yankee helped on Tuesday to deliver the first 500 of a total of 2,000 specially prepared kits to help with the initial cleanup of homes in Caguas, in Puerto Rico’s interior, as part of his effort to help the island residents after the devastating passage of Hurricane Maria.

The singer, who is Puerto Rican, was accompanied by a number of volunteers from the Habitat for Humanity and Save the Children organizations, with which he had made a commitment to work to help the neediest Puerto Ricans in the wake of the storm.

After Maria struck in mid-September, destroying a large part of the island’s infrastructure and damaging thousands of homes, Daddy Yankee promised to donate $250,000 and help to collect an additional $1.5 million to help with the recovery.

“Puerto Rico has a long road ahead and we all have to work together to ensure that the island’s families have the support they need,” he said.

“I’m proud to be able to work with Habitat for Humanity and Save the Children,” he added.

The kits are designed for low-income families to help them with the initial cleanup of the damage caused to their homes by the storm.

The remaining 1,500 kits will be distributed in other towns around the island.

The kits include tools, a bucket, duct tape and nails, among other items.

The kits are part of the first phase of aid provided to Puerto Rico by Habitat for Humanity, which announced after the storm that it would help around 6,000 families on the island.
