Puerto Rico Hurricane Response

Still struggling to recover from 2017’s Hurricane Maria, the residents of Puerto Rico are watching Hurricane Dorian with fear and anxiety. Many families in Dorian’s projected path are still living under tarps instead of roofs, and even a glancing blow by this latest storm could cause significant problems.

Ready to Help

Through Send Relief compassion ministry, Southern Baptists have continuously sent volunteer teams and resources to Puerto Rico to aid in the recovery efforts since Hurricane Maria’s brutal landfall. With your support, Send Relief has helped distribute more than 760,000 meals, provided over 1,100 water filtration kits and, as a partner with FEMA’s VALOR program, has assisted in the cleanup and repair of nearly 700 properties.

Send Relief is tracking the progress of Hurricane Dorian and is ready to respond again.

When you give to Send Relief’s crisis response efforts, you are providing supplies, equipment and volunteers where they are needed most in the wake of this powerful storm.


Send practical help and the hope of the gospel.


When you give to Southern Baptist Disaster Relief, you can be confident you are meeting the immediate, significant needs of people in crisis while also investing in long-term gospel influence. We recommend you give directly to those states facing the greatest needs. Those states appear at the top of the drop-down list below. Choose a state, and you will be directed to the appropriate site to make your gift.


States impacted by natural disasters may need your help. Locate the state Disaster Relief directors below where you may be needed most. They can provide the best information for training and deployment opportunities. If you are already an SBDR trained volunteer and have not yet been deployed, contact your state DR director to let him know of your availability to serve.
