Hurricane Irma Dorsett Rebuild Fund

During the midnight hours of September 6 Irma hit the island of St. Martin with a vengance, for my family who are natives to the island we prepared as we usually do to brace for impact. Over the decades our home has weathered many storms. This is not the first destruction that has impacted my family but this time the destruction was unfathomable. My parents Rudolph age 76 and mother Marie age 67 has sacrificed to build a home for their family and on September 6 everything was destroyed.

Currently my mother is seeking refuge in the bathroom of what was once our home. The roof has been totally destroyed only about 10% of the roof is left on the house. The main wall is destroyed in certain areas of the house.  The wall surrounding the property has been demolished by trees and other debris. My mother is in the home alone, my father left 2 weeks ago to go back to New York to fulfill a doctors appointment.  At this point my parents has lost everything, I thank God for the one major blessing which is my mother's life.

Our homes has sustained around $100,000 worth of damage. My parents are in need of money, cement, cement blocks, tiles, wood, roofs, appliances, cabinetry, windows, etc. Resources are needed immediately. All proceeds will be greatly appreciated and will go towards the rebuilding of my parents homes. 

Thank you in advance for your support. Words cannot express our appreciation. You are helping a good family my parents are the type of people who always looks out for those in need. They will give you the shirt off their backs. You support will bless a good family.  Again on behalf of my family we want to thank you for being a blessing during this very difficult time.

Thank you,

The Dorsett Family
