IEEE Puerto Rico Section is the recipient for the 2018 R9 Best Achievement Award on behalf of JUNTOS PODEMOS! project after Hurricane María. Congratulations!!! Thank you IEEE Foundation, IEEE Humanitarian Technology Activity committee and IEEE SIGHT.
2018 – Reunión Regional 9 – Date: 14 – 17 March, 2018 Place: Asuncion, Paraguay (Hotel Sheraton, Asuncion).
This is the final Update of this amazing project, I really want to thank you for your support.
With the last shipments we visited 5 towns: Yabucoa, Gurabo, Lares, Adjuntas, Utuado, delivered in 2 different days: March 3 and March 11.
We reached in this second phase a total of 259 houses, impacting a total of 730 people, delivered directly by IEEE volunteers.
This people are amazing and keep the energy up even when they have been out of electricity for over 6 months. Also, what the sign says is: The neighborhood Guayo needs electricity, it was hanged at the entrance of one of the streets in Lares.
