The Amur Foundation, a nonprofit public charity arm of the Amur Companies is providing logistical support to the disaster relief efforts for Puerto Rico. Working with New York City-based City Harvest, the world’s first food rescue organization, and Feeding America, the nationwide network of food banks, Amur transported over 82,000 pounds of donated food, water, daily hygiene essentials, diapers, and supplies by freight trucks to Miami. These essential supplies were then airlifted by a 767 cargo aircraft, chartered by Amur to Aguadilla, on the west side of the island of Puerto Rico.
Puerto Rico Food Bank, part of the Feeding America network of food banks, is now assisting in the distribution of those supplies to those in greatest need.
