Hurricane Irma St. Martin victims

Hi my name is Jeffry Ravelo and at the present time I'm living in Bethlehem PA in the USA. Even though I am fiscally in the USA my heart and mind are with my family at this very difficult time. My parents are Maria Elena Ubiera Ravelo and Hector Julio Ravelo. My brothers, Niki Ravelo and Junior Ravelo and other family members and many of friends live in the island of st. Martin. I too lived and grew up in the island of St. Martin so this will always be home to me as well.

On 09/06/2017 St. Martin was hit by Irma a category 5 hurricane. The Island was destroyed. Airport, Hospitals, grocery stores everything is gone! And I was told it would be 6 months to one yrs without electricity.

My goal is to raise enough funds to help out my parents, brothers, family and friends.  The funds will be used for the following:  Food, Water, Medical Supplies (Both my brother Junior and father Hector were injured during the hurricane), Building Materials (as many of the homes have sustain considerable damage) and other necesities that may araise. 

Once our goal has been met I will be responsable for withdrawing the money and delivering the money to my family (due to gofundme withdrawals requirements). Once my older brother (Niki Ravelo) has received the funds he will be responsable for the managing the funds to purchase what was discussed above.  

Please help us with whatever little you can.  Little by little it all adds up and we can reach our goal. Even if you are not able to make a monetary donation please share this post on Facebook, Twitter or where ever. 

Thank you all in advance. God Bless.
