The US Virgin Islands took a direct hit from hurricane Irma, sustaining catastrophic damage. Telephone poles, rooftops, and debris were flung around like tumbleweeds. In short, the Island is reeling from the utter devastation and destruction of its fragile infrastructure.
My brother Asher and his wife Henya are Chabad Shluchim on the Island. Their family sheltered in a hospital building during the storm. Thankfully they are physically ok. The National Guard has been deployed.
They have been busy comforting and providing relief on the Island. They chose to stay so they could aid their community. Many people are still missing and they are helping families locate loved ones.
They haven’t been thinking about the significant expenses they will incur from repairing damage, eventual evacuation of their children (the Island airport is destroyed), much needed supplies, the assistance they are providing, and etc.
I set up this page to help fundraise for these anticipated and un-anticipated expenses.
Their presence is a source of tremendous comfort for people who have lost their homes and livelihood, and they could really use your help in continuing their vital mission.
Please help if you can! And share!
