Story

Imagine the worst possible scenario, and it is worst than that...

IRMA, the most powerful hurricane ever recorded, has left a path of devastation in the Caribbean and continues to threaten many more communities. The full force of IRMA was felt as the eye passed over Saint Martin, the pearl of the Caribbean. Our hearts are with everyone who has been affected by this massive storm and to those who are in her path. At this time we are concentrating our efforts in raising funds to assist with the basic needs of our brothers and sisters on Saint Martin as we are intimately connected to the people and the island.

The damage has been monumental as 95% of the infrastructure has been reported destroyed. There is another storm developing in the wake of IRMA and the people are vulnerable. There are no electricity or water services and no radio. In association with the Dutch and French tourism boards on the island, our fundraising will be directed to where it is needed most. As the official fundraising campaign we are in close touch with the government to assess their needs. We ask for your help and generosity now and as we continue to support the island through it's reconstruction.

Imaginez le pire scénario, et c’est bien pire que cela. IRMA, l’ouragan le plus puissant de l’histoire traverse les Caraïbes avec des effets dévastateurs et continue de menacer de nombreuses communautés. La puissance d’IRMA a été ressentie lorsque l'oeil est passé sur St-Martin, la perle des Caraïbes. Nos cœurs sont avec tous ceux qui ont été affectés par cette tragédie et à ceux qui sont sur son chemin. En ce moment, nous concentrons tout nos efforts pour recueillir des fonds pour aider les besoins fondamentaux de nos frères et sœurs à St Martin, car nous sommes intimement liés a la population local et à l'île. Les dommages ont été monumentaux puisque 95% de l'infrastructure a été signalée détruite. Il y a une autre tempête qui se développe à la suite d' IRMA et les populations sont vulnérables. Il n'y a pas de services d'électricité ou d'eau courante et pas de radio.
