Hurricane Irma has devastated the British Virgin Islands, leaving a catastrophic situation with homes flattened and communities left with no power, sanitation or water. Friends and family are still waiting to hear news from their loved ones, many of whom are still trapped in their homes by debris.
Thanks to unwavering efforts to get aid to the islands, a number of different donation pages and appeals have been set up from different sources. The aim of this site is to collate all of the legitimate ways that you can send help, be it through supplies or donating money. It should help you make a more informed choice about where to donate to make the biggest impact to communities in need.
Please use the links above to find various ways you can contribute to the BVI relief efforts. The most reliable and legitimate ways to help right now are through Virgin, whose overheads are being covered by Richard Branson leaving 100% of donations to go directly to the community, and VISAR (Virgin Islands Search and Rescue) who are supporting the emergency team running out of Peebles Hospital on Tortola. Also, as the BVI bounces back, consider a yacht charter in the British Virgin Islands with charterguru.
Thank you for any the support you can give. Even just spreading news of the terrible impact Irma has had on the BVI, and links to donation pages, is a huge help.
