Diocese of New York Announces Caribbean Recovery Fund REBECCA MERRILL JANUARY 17, 2018

This summer, hurricanes hit our neighbors in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean with a seemingly never-ending barrage of wind and rain, causing massive amounts of death and damage along the way. The Diocese of New York sprung into action for short-term assistance through Episcopal Relief and Disaster Recovery. Now, as the more intermediate and long term needs become known, the Diocese has announced its own initiative to help the Diocese of Puerto Rico.

The Caribbean Recovery Fund will be available for individuals and churches in partnership to make requests for specific infrastructure and ministry projects, partnerships, and mission with the Diocese of Puerto Rico and other areas in the Caribbean. Already, four mountain churches in Puerto Rico received water filtration systems.

You may contribute to the fund online or by sending a check payable to the Episcopal Diocese of New York with a designation of "Caribbean Recovery Fund." The diocese's Liaison for Global Mission, the Rev. Yamily Bass-Choate, will serve as liaison between the two dioceses, help identify projects, and disburse monies for specific projects. The fund is not intended for, and will not be used for, administration.
