THANK YOU for the extraordinary support extended since we started the fundraising efforts. Your donations, messages, shares, and kind words have shed a ray of hope on the people of the island in more ways than you can imagine.
Following, some important updates on the efforts done, in progress and coming up:
STAGE ONE - COMPLETED
Belmond Cap Juluca donated bed linen, towels water and other basic supplies. We visited over 200 families during the last 4 days.
STAGE TWO - IN PROGRESS
We are mapping certain number of families who were heavily impacted by Irma (Lost roof, whole house, personal belongings, etc). And other families who have been impacted but still have personal belongings. Task completion expected by Monday 18th September
STAGE THREE - STARTING
We are checking on ways to gather a container made of basic necessity items in Miami, FL to be sent to Anguilla with the help of amazing friends who have offered to take this on. If you have items like water, dry food, bed linen, hurricane preparedness items (flash lights, etc). Please hold until further info comes up shortly.
Once stage 2 is completed donation of the relief fund will start. Our plan is to dedicate 70% of the fund to construction materials so those who lost their roofs or houses can start right away with rebuilding as rain still affects them. 30% of the fund will be used for shipping costs and basic necessity items acquisition.Thank you all again for your extraordinary support, your help has such a big impact on people's lives, who are now just trying to leave Irma behind and seeing that day closer thanks to you.
