It has been 17 months since Hurricane Maria roared into the Caribbean and the southeastern United States. It left behind an estimated 3,000 dead in Puerto Rico, extensive damage to property, spiritual challenges, and the longest electrical black-out in U.S. history.
The Methodist Church of Puerto Rico was among first responders. The United Methodist Committee on Relief soon became a vital partner in disaster relief and response. ReHace was the name given the initiative that dispensed food, clean water, shelter and hope. “Rehace,” in Spanish, means “redo”; in United Methodist parlance it means “transformation.”
