Guest speaker, Zorimar Betancourt, Founder  and Executive Director of Fundación Stefano Steenbakkers Betancourt, gave a heartwarming narrative of how the tragic loss of her 17 year old son to a violent  criminal act, and the subsequent knowledge of how a year before he had donated his organs in the event of his death that saved the lives of five persons, turned her despair into positive action by organizing fund raising activities for people with chronic medical conditions who needed treatment here and in the states.   Hurricane Maria revealed to her the amount of people in the mountainous areas of our island that were disconnected from the rest of the island.  The Foundation took hot food, other necessities and concern and love to those in extreme need.  Zorimar continues her unconditional volunteerism with her dedication to the Foundation.
