The Delgado Family Rebuild Their Father's Home

ARECIBO, Puerto Rico, January 31, 2018- Carmen Delgado and her brother clean away debris and prepare the foundation to properly re-build with cement their father's home. Once a wooden house, the structure was blown away by Hurricane María. After being approved for Individual Assistance, the father insisted that they start rebuilding the home themselves since the demand for contractors is too high. The Delgado family is very aware of how everyone in Puerto Rico has suffered and are determined to take control of their recovery. FEMA/Andrea Bajandas
