Please help Providencia

Providencia island, a Caribbean island that is part of the Colombian Archipelago of San Andrés, was hit by  category 5 hurricane Iota and completely decimated on Tuesday, November 17th.  My love, Victor, his family, and 5,000 other amazing people call this island home.   For two excruciatingly long days I did not know if they were dead or alive.  Today we learned that while almost all of the infrastructure is destroyed, everyone survived!!  My prayers are with the 2 (reported) who lost their lives.    

I know that during this covid-time it may be financially (emotionally/mentally) challenging.  And, on top of covid, these people/my people just lost everything.  I planned to be with Victor by now to build our future together on Providencia.  I am leaving for Columbia tomorrow (Thursday, Nov 19th) to help Victors' sister (who lives on the mainland) bring the family to us.  

I will update you when I can and I promise that every cent that is donated will go to rebuilding peoples homes and livelihoods.  Providencia is a laid-back island circled by pristine reef and in the center are lush green mountains.  It 's considered 'the undiscovered jewel in the Caribbean'.  My hope is that one day you will come visit!
