AfterHurricane Maria, Ramon felt her burning need to help his homeland.
“When actor Ramón Rodriguez was in the midst of filming episodes of Showtime’s The Affair in September of 2017, Hurricane Maria was devastating Puerto Rico, where his father and other family live in the island’s mountain town of Orocovis. For two weeks Rodriguez couldn’t contact anyone, with phone lines and electricity down. “It was really brutal, not being able to be there.” As Rodriguez saw scene after scene on the news of buildings leveled and homes destroyed, and the U.S. government faced criticism for its response, 39-year-old Rodriguez felt compelled to do something. He turned to a childhood friend and New York City firefighter, Joseph Gonzalez, part of an all-volunteer band of roofers, carpenters, police officers and firemen already on the island providing aid through the non-profit HEART 9/11 (Healing Emergency Aid Response Team). ‘He saw I was desperate to help,’ says Rodriguez.” – PEOPLE
Penny and I had the good fortune to go to a screening of Pa’lante and see first-hand the great work being done as they not only rebuild roofs one roof at a time but teach local people how to build even more roofs.
