Help Anguilla (Hurricane Irma)

£15,791 of £100,000 goal

Raised by 176 people in 5 months

What Happened?

Our little unflustered island of Anguilla is under siege from the strongest and most catastrophic hurricane to date - Category 5 Hurricane Irma. The effects of this hurricane whose fury exceeded that of Hurricane Katrina (Category 3 - the 3rd deadliest hurricane in US history) has sent Anguilla into a complete state of emergency.

Who are we?

We are a group of locals from Anguilla raising awareness and funds for other locals and infrastructure severely hit by Hurricane Irma. 

*** UPDATE ***
There have been speculations that this account might be scam. However, it is NOT. To ensure people know that we are 6 locals from Anguilla, we've created a collage showing who we are. 



Here are our instagram pages so you can verify who we actually are:

Our Relationship to Anguilla & Where the funds will go? 

We embarked on our goal of 100k directed to what we felt were some of the biggest necessities; healthcare and housing. Growing up on Anguilla, and watching the hospitals which nurtured us floored, and the village houses completely destroyed by Hurricane Irma was unimaginable. It set us on the mission of raising funds to aid in their restoration. As soon as communication to the institutions is possible again, we will allocate the raised funds to the directors of the entities to aid in the reparations.  The funds will be audited by BDO International, who has volunteered to  monitor how the money is spent. 

How will funds be spent?

Once the funds are allocated to the directors of the institutions, the funds will be spent on the rebuilding and refurbishing of Anguilla's only hospital and the assistance of restoring local homes based on the severity of the damage (i.e, completely destroyed homes, missing roofs, etc). 

This Go-Fund-Me page is urging assistance for any Hurricane Irma Relief Efforts including the funding of critical supplies, care supplies, construction and food supplies. Your donation will aid in the restoration and re-development of the Caribbean island of Anguilla.

*ALL FUNDS WILL GO TOWARDS THE COMMUNITY* 


Please help Anguilla survive this catastrophy.  

Every cent counts! 

Thank you so so so much!

We will post updates as soon as we get them.

The donations for relief to Anguilla will take the following distribution routes.

Firstly, the money will move from the gofundme account to the account of myself - Teresa Brooks. Upon moving to that account, the money will then be apportioned and sent to the Anguilla Health Authority and the Anguilla Department of Education.

The method of distribution chosen is by Managers Check from my Barclays checking account in order to ensure security of the funds and security of transfer to the intended institutions. Written confirmation will be required alongside proof of confirmation.

Once the funds are received by the Health Authority they will be apportioned to the items of relief selected by HelpAnguilla. A confirmation of areas will be received on the 26th of October. The Health Authority will then confirm that it applied the funds for the purpose of buying equipment lost by Hurricane Irma.

The Head of the Education Department in Anguilla will then transfer the monies in equal portions to each of the seven schools on the island for the purchase of relief items.
