Story

Why we need your help

On 6th September 2017, Hurricane Irma hit St Maarten with destructive winds and rain at 185 mph. Hurricane Irma was the strongest and largest hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic.

Our hearts are broken to see the devastation Irma has caused to our beloved island.

95% of the island is uninhabitable, leaving Islanders without shelter or adequate food and water. Despite this many are staying on the island and are determined to rebuild. Others are too frail to be evacuated.

My name is Kenia Craane and I would like your help to fund emergency relief from the UK to help my family, friends and islanders survive this disaster and begin to rebuild their lives.

Your money will be spent directly on efforts such as:

- Baby formula, food, nappies and hygiene essential

- Toiletries such as deodorant, toothpaste, bodywash and other essential

- Drinking water

- First aid supplies and emergency kits

- elderly continent essential

- Dry and tinned food

- Clothes and shoes

- Cat and dog

Please give generously and spread the word!

Peace and love,

Kenia.

P.s. We're planning to work in partnership with Miami Dade Animal Rescue to rescue cats and dogs left abandoned by their owners.
