It is with great sadness that we inform you of the recent passing of CC International’s Puerto Rico Project Coordinator Hector Saroza.
Hector made the video below shortly after the hurricane and worked tirelessly to help Puerto Rico recover.
Hector has been an essential leader as the Puerto Rico Project has had to adapt and expand to meet the challenges as Puerto Rico continues to recover. His love and dedication to serving others inspired the hundreds of volunteers who had the good fortune to work with him over the past six years.
Our dear friend and colleague will be deeply missed. Although we can never replace Hector we can honor his life and continue his mission of helping the people of Puerto Rico recover and thrive.
We are starting the Hector Saroza Memorial Fund for Puerto Rico in his honor and will be organizing special service trips to Puerto Rico for those who knew and worked with Hector. Both of these initiatives will support the continuation of projects developed by Hector over the past six years.
We who knew and loved Hector will do our best to continue his legacy of selfless service and positive action in his beloved Puerto Rico.
The road to recovery will be long but we will be with our partners throughout this journey.
