As you know so many people were devestated recently by Hurricane Irma. Among those people were my family. My Sister Zarah, Nephew Hasani and His Daughter Katana lost everything.
I'm asking for a lot here but I'm hoping my friends, family and extended network of people can help share and give if they can.
I'm estimating it will take $5,000 to get them back to the states and set them up with a place to live as well as basic necessities before they can be stable and working again. It will take another $3,000 to help Hasani to survive and fix his small shanty in Coral Bay.
I don't know what else can be done for them, I worry about the news ( and lack of news) coming from the US VI. Lack of supplies, slow federal emergency response. I don't feel like it's safe for them there, so that's why I'm asking for help. Anything at all is appreciated. Much love and gratitude to you all!
Zarah and Katana(3yrs) have miraculously been evacuated to Atlanta and are decompressing and figuring out a next move! Zarah's kids Hasani and Sabrikah and her grand daughter Va'Nae (3yrs) are still on St. John. St. John was getting relief from Puerto Rico and St. Croix, but now that those islands got devastated yesterday from Hurricane Maria -St John and St. Thomas are in danger of having little relief for getting clean water and food sent to them !! This doubles the hurdle they face in trying to survive and rebuild. Currently we have no communication again because of hurricane Maria. Prayers please! Zarah would like to raise a little money for St. John Rescue also so if the goal of $10,000 is made $2000 will go to them. $2000 will go to get a generator for the family left in the VI and other funds will go to travel expenses for helping get Va'Nae home to her dad in Atlanta.
