The good deed was called out by Puerto Rico Congresswoman Jenniffer González, who thanked Pitbull for his efforts via Twitter.

"Thank God we're blessed to help". "Together, we can help rebuild our island and the Caribbean". "Just doing my part", he told the outlet on Tuesday (Sept. 26).

Pitbull sent his private jet to Puerto Rico to transport cancer patients on the hurricane-ravaged island to mainland USA for chemotherapy treatment, CNN reports.

The hurricane Maria, part of the triple major Hurricanes that have lashed the United States of America and surrounding territories back-to-back, has caused a near-total blackout in Puerto Rico, with only a handful of places having any electricity or means of generating it.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has given the team jet to JJ Barea, who will bring resources to his home country of Puerto Rico.

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.

"Puerto Rico is under a humanitarian crisis", he said on Instagram.

With the team's blessing, Barea was given use of the Mavericks' private plane to haul supplies to his native Puerto Rico after it was rocked by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

It's no secret that Puerto Rico is still reeling from the devastation brought upon by Hurricane Maria, and they need all the help they can get. He flew to Puerto Rico Monday evening when travel to the island was permissible.

Like many with family members in Puerto Rico, Barea reportedly didn't have any contact with his parents until this past Sunday, days after the storm hit the island. "But we got to get it moving".

"We're hoping to do it again, and everything went smooth today, so we are hoping to do it later this week", the player said.
