Building Puentes means building bridges
Recovery on Caribbean islands after Hurricane Maria is pressing and challenging. Local leaders have been working tirelessly given their new reality. Videographer Kristina Diaz has sent us “Visual Stories from the ELCA Caribbean Synod” to give us perspective on what is no longer in the headlines. “The devastation is great. As a synod, let us join Building Puentes and help in relief efforts that not only rebuild concrete structures, but can also rebuild the spirit of our neighbors, friends, and fellow citizens of the Caribbean,” says the Rev. Leila Ortiz. As part of the Building Puentes call, we will build connections and true relationship with work trips and aid. Learn more.
