Together, we can help Puerto Rico recover.
In September 2017, Hurricane Maria became the worst storm to hit Puerto Rico in over 80 years, destroying a third of the homes on the island1, causing the largest blackout in U.S. history, and creating over $90 billion in damages. Small businesses were severely impacted, with an estimated 10,000 still closed today. Because Puerto Rico’s local communities are powered by small businesses, helping them recover is critical to the islandʼs economic and social recovery.

“I want you to meet Patrick, a 15 year old kid from Northern Uganda, was born deaf. Unable to communicate with his family or attend school and unable to make friends, his father sent him to work in the fields, he was trapped in his own mind.
A man from a near by village started teaching classes for deaf villagers and Patrick was one of those students. After 15 years of being trapped in his own head, he finally had a signed name that he could recognize.
Watching Patrick's story I knew that I needed to build a business where I would make people happy and make their dreams come true. I'm able to do this for my clients and I hope to be able to do this for people like Patrick.
Cheema’s Travel aims to open schools for the deaf in remote parts of the world for not just the deaf students but for their families and I hope they can bring what they have learned to others.
Thank you Patrick!” - Rani Cheema
