Hey everyone, Hurricane Sandy Hit Jamaica a couple of days ago and almost completely destroyed the small town I am from. A lot of my family members and close friends have lost everything with this storm, their houses have been completely blown down or flooded and some were seriously injured. The roof of the school in the district was completely blown off and the local markets destroyed.

There is now No Running water, No Electricity, their farms have been destroyed, the beach they fished from has been destroyed by large boulders that washed up during the storm so they have very little food. There has been an increase of mosquitos and sand flies due to the lingering water which is leading to an increase incidence of Dengue Fever according to the Jamaican Ministry of Health.

This is an extremely underserved community in a rural area and these people have nothing left and no means of rebuilding. I know this is a rough time for most people but I am asking if any of you or your friends/family members will join me in the effort of helping this community by providing disaster relief.

We are collecting monetary donations to help meet some of their immediate needs and material donations in the form of nonperishable food, clothing, sheets, first aid supplies, shoes, diapers etc. anything you are willing to give is much appreciated.

You can go to this website  to donate or donate directly from paypal to or inbox me if you have material goods you would like to donate and I’ll give you more information, every little bit helps. Thanks so much
