In light of the recent devastation that has swept through the Caribbean due to Hurricane Irma, the Toronto Caribbean Newspaper would like to aid in the hurricane relief effort to help the families that have been affected by this storm.

Hurricane IRMA, the most powerful hurricane ever recorded, has left a path of devastation in the Caribbean and continues to threaten many more of the islands in the south. The storm hit the Caribbean last week with the full force of its Category 5 winds. The full force of IRMA was felt by islands like Saint Martin, Antigua and Barbuda St. Thomas, and St. John in the US Virgin Islands, Turks and Caicos and Cuba.

Relief and recovery is needed on all of these islands, as many of them have been flattened to the point where they are no longer fit to live. The people of the islands have lost their families, and their homes, and they are in need of immediate assistance.

Our thoughts and prayers 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 all efforts in raising funds to assist with the basic needs of families

The damage has been monumental amongst the islands and 90% 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 the island consulates here in Toronto, 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 various islands through their reconstruction.

This Fundraising effort will provide relief to survivors in the form of emergency supplies like food, water, clothing and medical supplies and will help immensely with the rebuilding process. All donations to this fund will exclusively support relief and recovery efforts.

Our goal is to help the islands in any way that we can during this time of need and as a community we need to do this now more than ever. Please like, love and share widely. If you have any supplies you can offer please contact us directly to help.
