We are saddened to hear about the current devastation that is visiting the Caribbean (as well as many other countries), with the sweeping through of Hurricane Irma and the threat of Hurricane Maria following close behind.
Lives have been lost, homes have been blown away and livelihoods have been destroyed.
If you are interested in donating to help those who have been affected here are some links to organisations who are accepting donations for affected countries.
