Hurricane Irma has caused widespread damage across Barbuda. American University of Antigua (AUA) has created this fund to provide relief in the form of emergency supplies like food, water, and medicine in addition to longer-term recovery assistance to help residents recover and rebuild. All donations to this fund will be matched by AUA and will exclusively support relief and recovery efforts from this storm.

We believe that organizations that are deeply-rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like Hurricane Irma. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges.

Thanks once again for your generous donations to help Barbuda recover from Hurricane Irma. We’re proud to announce a partnership with the Arthur Nibbs Foundation to begin Phase 1 of our Rebuild Barbuda Initiative. Your funds will help ship $90,000 worth of building material to Barbuda to repair homes for Barbudans.

A portion of your donations will also be used to fund living quarters for the Antigua and Barbuda Defense Force. These brave men and women are helping to rebuild the Barbuda airport and assist with clean-up efforts. Providing them with suitable shelter will help speed up this process.

Your generosity has helped us to keep the Caribbean strong in the wake of these storms. A million thanks from the AUA family!
