Green Women Rising support “Virgin Islands Relief Fund” in lieu of starting one of our own in the interest of expedience and ”on the ground” experience.
On September 6th , Hurricane Irma tore through the Caribbean, meeting the United States Virgin Islands and British Virgin Islands head on. Irma was the strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic, with winds reaching over 220 miles per hour. In its wake, a post-apocalyptic trail of devastation remains.
A lot of main essentials are desperately needed by citizens on the islands. Please help any way you can so we can get much-needed basics to the people of our island territories, like tarps, fresh water, chainsaws, extension cords, generators, gas, baby formula, bug spray and non-perishable foods. Thank you in advance.
