Dear members and friends

It has been three weeks since IRMA made landfall in the islands of the Caribbean and changed the lives of our brothers and sisters for a long time to come. This was followed by MARIA that ultimately crashed any little infrastructure left to assist them. We are just now starting to comprehend the magnitude of the destruction caused by these hurricanes.

In the next few months we are going to be hearing tragic stories, as well as heroic ones. In the past few days SITE Florida and the Caribbean has been receiving 911 calls from one of those heroes.

David Krech a SFC Board member based in St. Thomas is one them, he has been in limited contact with us due to challenges with communication; however, he continues to update us, daily, about the destruction; as well as the limited to no resources available for the people in St Thomas. “…our people in St. Thomas have lost not only their roofs or homes but also their jobs, and ultimately they have run out of supplies, don’t even have water or electricity or anything to cook with. It will take months to get electricity, they desperately need help!”

THIS IS A 911 CALL TO ALL OUR MEMBERS AND FRIENDS

We urgently need your help with donations to buy and ship the supplies, SFC has started these funds with $5,000 and we are looking to double up this amount and more. These funds will provide direct assistance to the victims of these catastrophic and historic storms.

Should you not be able to donate online, you may also donate generators, 50 to 100 ft. Extension cords, Coleman camping stoves (two burners) – propane. Your generosity would be deeply appreciated.

For any questions or additional information, please contact admin@sitefloridacaribbean.org

Donate


REGARDING PUERTO RICO, we are waiting for feedback from our members and friends in the island. Communication has been very difficult.
