Hurricane Support - Selwyn Puig -

Selwyn needs our help.  With the damage cuased by Hurricane Irma and then followed by Maria the house is severely damaged.  As a source of rental income she needs to get these back in shape as soon as possible in hopes of some tourism.  But until then she needs our support.  No electricity or running water.  Only 20% of island has electricity, she would consider herself lucky to have electricity by Christmas.  Every elec pole was down if not ripped out of ground.  Home Depot on island finally opened but you can not go in, staff goes in for you and gets what you need.  Roads are better but curfew starts at 7pm each night.   She does have some insurance but it will not cover expenses to get estimates and the loss of rental income.   She needs your donation to keeps things going.  Just debris removal is over $1k.   Will need a new roof, porch rebuilt and windows.  I have so many pictures of the damage I can not post them all.  She has a generator coming Monday and excited no more buckets baths or pulling water for toilet.  Excited to be able to run a fan.    Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated.
