This is not being a good year for south American countries, who in this hurricane season, also got stroke by earthquakes. These catastrophes caused total devastation of islands like Saint Martin, Barbuda and Turkish Islands, but also continental zones like Puerto Rico. This country even got real Instagram comments as signs of support thanks to Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin and Marc Anthony.
After these disasters in Centro American countries, the governor Ricardo Roselló asked for humanitarian help for his state through the initiative “United for Puerto Rico”.
Immediately, Ricky Martin, who originally is from Puerto Rico, started to get involved in getting help for his country, posting photos with the goal of obtaining real Instagram comments of support which would help getting the page of the initiative around the world. After this, he travelled to his country to help and get more support with his photographs of this catastrophic place.

It’s incredibly intense what Puerto Rico is going through at the moment. It will take a long time for my island to go back what it was. The governor of Puerto Rico Ricardo Rosselló said it will cost approximately 90 billion dollars to rebuild the island. We need more help. Thousands of families lost EVERYTHING …….but their smiles and love for life is intact. We are optimistic. Everything is going to be ok and my island will shine again. BUT WE NEED TO WORK……ALOT. #Allin4PR For donations link on BIO. 📸: @omarcruzphoto
