Puerto Rico

Sat Nam Foundation sent a team to install water filtration and collection systems in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Irma left millions without power or access to clean water long-term.  

Our team partnered with Isla Urbana and Ha Ta Tukari to reach and bring water to remote Puerto Rican villages.

The Syrian Civil War and other humanitarian crises lead to the largest migration of refugees in history, many making dangerous journeys across the Mediterranean Sea.  Sat Nam Foundation responded by sending lifeguards to Lesvos, Greece to prevent disaster as the flimsy and overcrowded boats came to shore.  We also sent a sevadar to work with the refugees in a camp when they came to shore, helping them get warm and fed after their dangerous crossing.

Despite nearly-insurmountable conditions, few resources, and against unbelievable odds, Indigenous people are struggling hard to overcome decades of neglect, discrimination and forced destruction of their traditional cultures. Inspired by our work at Standing Rock, we are currently working with first nation tribes to develop healthy, sustainable and sovereign food sources on first nation reservations from farming to harvesting to store-front.
