In a note shared with Red Nose Day USA, Lauren recounts her experience on Red Nose Day‘s work in Puerto Rico after hurricane Maria.
Here’s an excerpt:
So much can happen in a year.
Today marks one year since Hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico. The storm wreaked havoc on the island, destroying over 90,000 homes, shutting down the electrical grid, and forcing more than 300,000 people to leave their homes.
When I visited Puerto Rico with Red Nose Day months after the hurricane, I was astounded. Not only by the many issues still troubling the island, but by the strength and resilience demonstrated by those who live there.
Among the many incredible people I met during my trip, I was particularly touched by 13-year old Gabriela. Gabriela and her family survived the storm by hiding in a tiny closet, while their home was battered and destroyed. Despite her ongoing hardships, Gabriela has aspirations to become a doctor, and to help her mom rebuild their home.
