A Cuban from Texas is working with Mavericks to help Puerto Ricans

Dallas Mavericks point guard J.J. Barea sits with supplies transported to Puerto Rico via the team plane

His good deed came to light after Jenniffer Gonzalez, Puerto Rico's representative in Washington, thanked him on Twitter.

When news outlets reached out to Pitbull through a spokesman he said, "Thank God we're blessed to help. Just doing my part". She is also working with other celebrities to airplanes fly to the island with much-needed supplies including generators and medical equipment. Barea, who's Puerto Rican, counting stranded family members including his parents and grandmother on the island.

Pitbull is sending his private jet to Puerto Rico to take in cancer patients who need chemo and ferrying them to the United States for treatment.

More than a week after the category 4 hurricane struck on 20 September, "in many places there's no water to drink or bathe in or to flush toilets", Vox reports.

In the spirit of love and camaraderie, Pitbull made a decision to help the citizens of Puerto Rico in his own creative way. "Worldwide" following the disaster caused by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. "That's where I'm born and raised".

In fact, pop diva Jennifer Lopez announced last week she would be donating $1 million.

"We're running out of food, we're running out of provisions, we're running out of gas, we're running out of medicines". He said they hope to go back with more supplies but getting private planes and airport slots is not easy.

US President Donald Trump is apparently planning to visit Puerto Rico, but has not set a date yet due to "infrastructure concerns", according to a White House official.
