My cousin Jennifer and her husband Crispin have been building their dream in Dominica. They built a main house and two cottages there and have been running Hideaways of Tibay Heights. When Hurricane Maria hit Dominica it was a category 5 and we lost contact with Jennifer. Today, Sept 28th we received our first update directly from Jenn.
Official:We are safe. Nearly all is lost but Crispin, Beau, Baby and even Bronson the cat miraculously survived. We lost the roof, second floor and both the cottages but we are weatherproofing what's left of our house as the rains have come again. Likely no electric for 6 months but we are putting the verandah roof back up to collect water for our cistern. Tough times ahead. I must return to the States to work while Crispin rebuilds. Trying to get him supplies so I can safely leave him.
I, along with her family and friends, am starting this go fund me account to help Jennifer and Crispin rebuilt their dreams. I know Jennifer would do anything for her friends and family and now it is time to give back.
