Hurricane Irma was a category 5 hurricane that devastated the Turks and Caicos Islands. Specifically, Grand Turk got hit the worst and a lot of people are without power, food and shelter right now. Every penny raised will go towards buying generators, camping stoves and much needed supplied for the local people.
The first shipment of supplies arrived to the island on September 18th. We need ongoing support to keep the supplies going to the island. It will be a couple of months before they will have power and communication restored to the island. The majority of the islanders do not have hurricane insurance and the damage done to Grand Turk is very extensive.
The initial goal is to send generators and cooking equipment to the island followed by construction supplies and tools to repair the damaged homes. There are a handful of people on the island to help distribute the supplies to those who need it.
My family and I have been visiting the Turks & Caicos islands for the past 15 years. We are regular visitors and have many friends on the island in need of support.
