On September 20, Hurricane Maria, a category 5 hurricane struck the northeastern Caribbean and the Leeward Islands, leaving in its wake much devastation and destruction. Hurricane Maria was preceeded by Hurricane Irma just two weeks prior, another Category 5 hurricane that also wreaked havoc on the region.
A family of five who reside on the island of St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands have been gravely affected by the wrath of Hurricane Maria. The natural disaster has severely damaged their home, with most of the roof gone, and significant water damage and flooding within the house. Communication has been limited, as the hurricane has damaged much of the island's power grid. They have sought shelter in a nearby hospital due to the extent of the damage.
Given the severity of the situation, we are working to temporarily relocate the family to Florida. We are reaching out for assistance with this endeavor, and a donation of any amount would be greatly appreciated. Your donation will be directed towards the following:
* Airline tickets and additional relocation costs
* Clothing and shoes
* Medical and healthcare costs
*Food and other basic necessities
