Help for Hurricane Victims in Puerto Rico

October 07, 2017
More than two weeks after hurricanes Irma and Maria completely devastated the island of Puerto Rico, they are starting the arduous task of cleaning and reconstruction; with most people not having the basic needs, for any human being to be able to survive. On this edition of Centro, we give you the latest information available on what is happening on the island and how you can help the victims of tragedy. WBZ’s Yadires Nova-Salcedo talks with Greg Molina, Communications Director for the Puerto Rican Festival of MA. Tune in!
