More than 130 faith communities across the United States are praying and acting for hurricane victims during religious services this weekend. Religious groups are calling for debt relief and "no strings attached" reconstruction aid for hurricane-hit islands.
"Islands like Puerto Rico and Dominica are in critical need of reconstruction funds," said Eric LeCompte, Executive Director of the religious development organization Jubilee USA. "Debt relief is a crucial part of aid for islands affected by hurricanes."
Churches and Temples across the United States are participating in prayers and actions for hurricane victims a part of Jubilee USA's "Jubilee Weekend."
