Paviani Family Hurricane Help

$11,635 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 90 people in 9 months
My name is Natalie and I live in Texas but my entire  family lives and works on St. Maarten Island in the Caribbean. They were hit directly by the category 5 Hurricane Irma. The eye of the storm passed over the island and winds up to 220 mph plus ravaged the island and destroyed everything in its wake. My family is safe and survived this catastrophe but are now left with nothing. The entire island had been destroyed. It was as if bombs had gone off decimating everything in sight. Their homes, cars, and businesses are ruined.

St. Maarten is a small island and currently without water, power, communication and means of transportation, leaving them stranded. The relief process is challenging and will take a very long time. The airport is completely gone and leaving my parents not able to return and my uncle’s family stranded. Obviously, life is worth more than all the money in the world, but being the daughter, niece, cousin, and granddaughter to this remarkable family, I want to plead for the help of family, friends, guests and others to help them and rebuild. It will be a costly expense to recover from all that was lost, their lives could be uprooted and their business and livelihood will suffer for a very long time.

Happy Holidays, my friends and family!

My family and I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you for your thoughtful messages and generous contributions to our family’s page. Your support during this extremely difficult and emotional time has touched us deeply.
I would like to update everyone on what’s happening in St. Martin. Things are getting better and the rebuilding has started, but SLOWLY. Pascal and Lionel are working harder than ever as Piazza Pascal is helping the government feed the french military all day everyday. Lionel has purchased a shipping container and will soon be temporarily operating Le String bar from it until the government builds the new complex on Orient Bay Beach. Both restaurants will officially open to the public in January. Gisele’s apartments in Mount Vernon are still waiting to be repaired.
Gisele, Sev, Enzo and Ethan have been in Paris the last few months and Lionel will soon join them for Christmas and return to St. Martin in January. Donna has be in Dallas with her daughter Natalie and her family. She is soaking up as much precious time as possible with her new baby grandson. Pascal and their daughter, Ariane, will be coming to Dallas for Christmas and this will be the first Christmas in a long time all of them will be together. Donna and Pascal will return to St. Martin in January.
It has been a stressful and sad time for all of us but we are thankful we are all safe and happy to all be together. St. Martin has changed but we are determined to make it work and come back better than ever. We know your thoughts and prayers are with us and that gives us strength to continue. Thank you again for your support and we hope to see you all soon. Come see us and help keep St. Martin alive!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
