Aid for the People of Barbuda

$2,338 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 28 people in 12 months
In the winter of 2016 we left Cape Cod, MA to vacation on Barbuda, a little known island until today. We were immediately welcomed by the most kind and warm people; people who were rich in many ways but money was not one of them. Wild donkeys, goats and horses roamed the dirt roads and the tiny town of Codrington was the only area with electricity while all other parts of this rural island operated on solar.

This island could not afford a small storm yet the PM has reported that over 90% of the island has been decimated by the Cat5 Irma. They have no water, no electricity, no way to communicate with anyone off island and limited provisions. Over 60% of the 1600 people are now homeless.

I have set up this GoFundMe to benefit Kelcina George, the owner of Barbuda Cottages. She has promised to distribute 100% of the money raised directly to the people of Barbuda who need it most. 

Anything you can contribute, even $5, I can promise you, will make a difference.

Authorities are working diligently to evacuate everyone from Barbuda before Hurricane José barrels down on the island. Despite total devastation and another hurricane on their doorsteps, the people of Barbuda have great faith and are resilient beyond anything I could ever imagine being.

We are almost at our $2000 goal and I can't thank you enough for all of your donations and sharing on social media!

This Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/abstvradio/ has incredible pictures, interviews and video of Barbuda and her people. When you have a moment, take a look and see how your dollars will help.

Kelcina George, my contact on Barbuda who will distribute the funds to Barbudans most in need, is thankful beyond words for your kindness and generosity and says "God bless you all."

If you can continue to share on your social media and in email, I would love to show Barbudans that we do care and they aren't forgotten.

From the bottom of my heart thank you all! xoxo
