Dr. Troche's Medical-Social Brigades
Dr. Jose Troche is a general doctor in the mountainous Yauco municipality of Puerto Rico and has been helping his community for over 20 years. After Hurricane Maria, Dr. Troche requested aid from the mainland in order to bring medical care, clean water supplies, and living supplies into remote Yauco. Following Maria, he donated countless hours of time conducting health and social welfare screenings on the weekend. The Figueroa Wu Family Foundation made their first delivery to Dr. Troche in November 2017. An estimated 1000 people have received supplies related to our November delivery. Evelyn Figueroa and Justine Landi, also from UIC, brought more supplies March 7-14, 2018 as well as labor support to improve water and housing conditions.

Dr. Troche continues to visit the highlands in Yauco many weekends. Donations and volunteers are needed to help rebuild the community and improve their health.
