On the 6th September Hurricane Irma passed over the BVI as the most powerful Atlantic hurricane in history rated as a category 5 plus causing widespread catastrophic damage. A state of emergency has been declared in the BVI.
All Conch Charters yachts were tied up in Paraquita Bay Marine Shelter however, due to the intensity of the storm the majority of the yachts broke free and have suffered major damage, most beyond repair.
Due to this Conch Charters will not be re-opening for business in the near future and unfortunately have had to lay off the work force as there is no work for them. Many of them have already lost their homes and now their liveihood.
We are hoping to raise $50,000 as soon as possible which will go to helping them re-build their lives and find a way forward during this very challenging time.
If you are able there are also many other ways to donate to re-building the BVI which will help speed the process of restoring infrastructure. This will improve living conditions and making it possible for business to get back up and running.
