Russia's Maria Sharapova and Olympic champion Monica Puig will go to Puerto Rico next week and bring necessary supplies to the island which was hit badly by Hurricane Maria last month.

Sharapova is a five-time Grand Slam champion and Puig won Puerto Rico's first Olympic gold medal in any sport at the Rio de Janeiro Games last summer.

The tennis stars will be heading to Puerto Rico next Monday and distribute water, medicine and other supplies.

Besides, Puig has raised more than 125,000 US dollars to help storm victims, while Sharapova is donating proceeds from her candy company Sugarpova for the rest of 2017.

The storm hit Puerto Rico on Sept. 20, causing at least 48 deaths as well as widespread flooding.
