St Martin fundraising after IRMA

My sister Adeline lives in St Martin and her family and friends are victims of hurricane IRMA, the most powerful hurricane ever recorded. IRMA has left a path of devastation in the Caribbean and continues to threaten many more communities. 
The damage has been monumental as most of the infrastructures have been destroyed. My sister is a teacher in St Martin and her school like most of the other schools have been completely destroyed. Hurricane Irma has destroyed most homes, many people jobs are in questions and the island is completely devastated. It will take years to rebuild the island and we would like to help those who have been impacted the most and who lost everything . Anything you can give will help to support the island through its reconstruction.
I'm responsible (Magali Arnaud) for withdrawing the money into my own bank account & I will then transfer the funds to the administrator of the school where my sister teaches in Saint-Martin (the college quartier d'orleans).
The school has been extremely damaged as it has been severely flooded. The kids will need school material (books, copybooks, school stationery...) as well as a place to rest as most of them don't have a home anymore. The plan is to set up a special room for the students to hang out (with books, drawing material, music...) in order for them to stay safe and secure before heading back to their temporary homes and shelters.
