The Rotary District 7020 Disaster Team has opened a Hurricane Irma Recovery Fund for the Caribbean Islands affected by the devastating Hurricane Irma.

Rotary is a non-profit organization and District 7020 consists of different territories in the Caribbean such as St. Martin, St. Maarten, Turks and Caicos Islands, Haiti, Jamaica, USVI, BVI, Bahamas, Cayman Islands and Anguilla. All territories are like a family to each other and for many years have worked together to help improve communities and assist less fortunate persons globally.

As a past Rotaractor, I am happy that my friends are alive and safe but I am truly saddened by the devastation that Hurricane Irma has caused to their homes and the Islands in general.

Within the District it seems that St. Martin, St. Maarten, BVI, USVI and the Turks and Caicos Islands have been struck the worse.

Six schools have been totalled in the BVI, so the Ministry of Education and Culture is considering to reopen under a shift system.

Many roofs have been taken off of the homes and buildings in St. Maarten, St. Martin, BVI and USVI.

The Islanders are trying to be positive and have been working hard to help their Islands rebuild. Digicel Jamaica and other Organizations have sent supplies of water and more to the Islands to give persons in communities and some supermarkets were just able to reopen.

Monetary aid is needed most at the moment though, for persons to have a roof over their head and more.

Please assist our Caribbean neighbours as much as you can in their time of need and help them to rebuild. One Love.
