Music Sensation Ricky Martin Launches Hurricane Maria Relief Initiative on YouCaring

With the electrical grid on Puerto Rico knocked out by Hurricane Maria - and emergency generators at the island's hospitals in danger of running out of fuel - electrical engineers from the New York Power Authority arrived on the island via a donated JetBlue flight to help take stock of the situation, NBC News reported.

The £5 million pledge brings the British Government's financial support for islands hit by Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Irma to £62 million, a sum which has gone to overseas territories including the British Virgin Islands, Anguilla and Turks and Caicos.

"I've been so moved by the initial responses", she continued.

In her speech, Lopez confirmed that she still has not heard from all of her family members in Puerto Rico.

During her trip, Ms Patel will meet families in the British Virgin Islands whose lives were torn apart by Hurricane Irma, and she will visit Anguilla to see United Kingdom efforts to get schools and businesses up and running to speed up recovery.

"As one of the leading independent, non-partisan, nonprofit economic empowerment NGOs in the island, no other time has our mission been so relevant". Ricky Martin, "Despacito" singer Daddy Yankee and Rosie Perez are also using their star power to help raise awareness and money. The newspaper quoted a farmer on the southeast coast as saying, "There is no more agriculture in Puerto Rico". "I just got connected to my daughter in Florida, and she will let the rest of the family know I'm fine".

"We urgently need to dedicate attention and support to Puerto Rico and the Caribbean through donations and any help", she said in Spanish.

"We also know that given the financial pressures that the island was under before, it makes the task even more hard", he said.
