Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi continues to help La Perla (a seaside neighborhood outside the city walls of Old San Juan, Puerto Rico) with supplies for victims of Hurricane Maria. He recently declared that his “commitment is stronger than ever.” El Nuevo Día reports:
Last Sunday Fonsi went back to La Perla to deliver perishable items, food, diapers for children, as well as four electricity generators to distribute in different sections of the neighborhood, which is located in Old San Juan, and does not have its own electricity.
“My commitment is stronger than ever,” said the Puerto Rican artist, composer and performer of the famous song “Despacito,” and whose video was filmed in that community, which caused the spot to become a tourist attraction, due to the success that it has had worldwide.
Fonsi, along with Ricky Martin, Chayanne, Gloria Estefan, among other artists, as well as athletes Iván Rodríguez, Bernie Williams, and Carlos Arroyo, arrived Puerto Rico on October 2 to bring more supplies for those affected by the cyclone.
Upon arrival on the island, each one of the artists was mobilized to different affected zones, which explains why Fonsi went to the La Perla, whereas Martin went to Loíza.
In addition to these artists, basketball player José Juan Barea and tennis player Mónica Puig have also brought items for the needy.
