She saved her Puerto Rican neighborhood; her 'angels' flew her to Philly 8.8.2018 Philly.com News
Shortly after Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, Daisy Lopez and Soraida Perez, two Philadelphia women, loaded five suitcases full of supplies and set off for the island. There, they met and forged a bond with Carmen "Milly" Chevere Ortiz, a woman whose neighborhood had been washed out by rising floodwaters. Nearly a year later, Ortiz is in Philadelphia this week. Lopez and Perez bought her a plane ticket, hoping a few days away from the island, where the scars from Maria still create daily hardships, would be rejuvenating.
