Gabriel DeBay and a team of paramedics in Puerto Rico

Gabriel DeBay, a paramedic with the Shoreline Medic 1 unit, just got home from a medical mission in Puerto Rico. And now he wants our help to save lives in Puerto Rico.

Gabriel says:

I just got home from an amazing medical mission as part of the US Department of Health and Human Services Washington-1 Disaster Medical Assistance Team. I, along with a team of amazing medical professionals. I was in a small town in central Puerto Rico named Comerio (pop 20,000+).

There is no power, internet, clean water, and fuel is very limited. People are getting sick and dying due to lack of basic necessities. There are so many items people need in Puerto Rican towns like Comerio, but every day I was there I realized the greatest need was something we take for granted.... clean drinking water. 

I want to raise $25,000 to buy and deliver water filters for the people in central Puerto Rico. I will go there along with a fellow paramedic and hand deliver the water filters to the communities and families most in need.

Since I have been there I can promise you the water filters will be hand delivered by me and my colleagues to the people who are most in need!!

This will save lives!
