To All Compassionate People
It is with the sadest of hearts that i come to you for assistance during this traumatic time. As reported in the news—95% of our island home St. Maarten/St. Martin has been destroyed by hurricane Irma, the strongest hurricane to ever form in the Atlantic basin.
In the blink of an eye, people lost their homes and livelihoods, many who you know-are without basic life necessities such as running water, electricity, food, clothes, and shelter.
Communication is extremely limited and alot of people remain unaccounted for even five days after the hurricane.
Many of you have generously reached out to enquire about how best to assist during this desperate time. A donation of any amount would be greatly appreciated.
Please see the list below that details how your money will spent.
* Canned and dried goods
* Water purification tablets
* Portable desalination systems
* Essential medications/First Aid supplies
* Baby formula/diapers/wipes
* Basic hardware and tools
* Family evacuation efforts
If we can raise enough to also help rebuild or fix properties.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your, prayers, and support.
