Hurricane Irma may be out of the headlines, but please keep the affected people in your hearts and on your mind. I wanted to share a couple of links re how you can help affected Caribbean countries, including our own Barbuda, recover. Women who live on Rocks is the most comprehensive resource I’ve found. They have general links but also country-specific links for Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, St. Martin/St.Maarten, the British Virgin Island, the U S Virgin Islands, the Turks & Caicos, the Bahamas. Here is the link to all those links.
I also have some Barbuda specific links posted to my blog; check them out here.
These countries have a long road back. It’s easy to lose sight of that once the camera turns to the next breaking news. Stay with them – stay with us – help get the displaced people back home.
Do what you can; even if all you can do is to pass these links along.
