Hurricane Irma has devestated the British Virgin Islands more then anyone could have foreseen.
My name is Natasha and I am currently living in the U.K.
I had the privalage of spending a year in this beautiful place with the most incredible group of Family's - the Family's of Tortolas Happy Table. I was accepted into their community and I regard these people as my family.
Through the work they do as a teacher, musician's (the Elmtones in Tortola), a day charter business on the boat Simiril. The lives of these people is completely intwined with the now devestated community.
Suzy and Steve and their two young children James (6) and Jervis (2). Vickey and Steve and their son Connel (2). Lindsay and Jason and their son Lochlan (6) and new baby Sawyer. Thankfully they have all made it through safe and unharmed. However they have lost everything they have, homes, belongs and livelihoods. What now faces them is a future of uncertainty and instability.
Please if you can spare any amount, that can be spread between them to support them and their young children.
Right now any money we can raise will go towards helping their immediate needs of Emergency travel, supplies or any unforeseen costs (hotels etc). The goal will be amended as needed. I'm asking for help so that these amazing people can try and rebuild their lives and move through this tragedy for their children.
