The Spanish rapper, Pitbull, is sending his private plane to Puerto Rico to bring cancer patients to the United States for their treatment after Hurricane Maria devastated the island.

 

Pitbull told the New York Daily News that this was “the least he could do” and that he felt “blessed to help.”

Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico earlier this month, and the citizens there are without power and have a dangerously low food and clean water supply.
