Ricky Martin Hands Over Keys to New Homes to Three Hurricane-Devastated Families in Puerto Rico

Ricky Martin is making a special delivery on his native island…

Taking advantage of his time in Puerto Rico, the 46-year-old Puerto Rican superstar visited the town of Loíza to continue to hand over keys to new homes for three families left homeless by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane María last year.

“Thanks to each of your contributions to our fund, we rebuild homes, provide protection and hope to hundreds of families,” Martin said in a press release.

The Ricky Martin Foundation, a nonprofit organization named after the superstar, has handed over homes that are being rebuilt after the losses. Identifying and reconstructing the homes began in March, and the goal is to give keys to some 225 families by the fall of 2019.

In the reconstruction project, there are over 30 Loíza residents working, and each recipient, apart from collaborating in the reconstruction of your home, choose the color of your paint, slabs and other elements. They also receive workshops at the Tau Center as part of this initiative.

Part of the funds have been raised thanks to the viral campaign selling a black shirt with the Puerto Rican flag stamped on it, which was designed by Martin twins, Valentino and Matteo.

The campaign has received the support of many superstars, including MalumaLuis FonsiBad Bunny, Will SmithMarc Anthony.
