In response to the catastrophic effects of Hurricanes Irma and Maria on Puerto Rico and other islands in the Caribbean region, CIES extends sentiments of sympathy to those impacted by these events. Several CIES members reside in these areas, and a significant number of our members represent the Caribbean diaspora. Likewise, many within our Society have fond memories of the 2012 Annual Meeting held in San Juan, Puerto Rico. We will continue to keep the many colleagues, friends, and family affected by these natural disasters in our thoughts.

Given the proximity in timing between the major earthquake in Central Mexico and Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, many concurrent disaster relief efforts are underway. If you are not sure where to start but would like to offer help, please take a moment to read this article with links to several charitable organizations.
