We Need Your Help To Get Back On Our Feet
It's been only a couple of says since the powerful Category 5 storm made landfall and decimated many of our local businesses and communities but the response from the international to step in and support where needed has been phenomenal. A state of emergency has been issued in Grand Turk and South Caicos and the full extent of the damage is till unknown, it's becoming clear that our lives will be forever changed by Irma.
If you are willing and able to give toward the recovery efforts, please do. If you cant we understand but ask to share with your friends to raise as much awareness as possible during such a difficult time.
SOUTH CAICOS RELIEF
Big South was badly effected by Irma, most residents have lost nearly everything and are in immediate need of food, shelter and water
HIRTAC IN ASSOCIATION WITH FOOD FOR THOUGHT
A UK-based initiative of TCI nationals affiliated with local charity Food For Thought for the purpose of providing meals to TCI government school children. They have expanded their work to cover those affected by Irma with a focus on liaising with government officials, disaster agencies and other local non-profits to provide both urgent and long-term relief.
PAMPERED PAWS ANIMAL SHELTER
Despite loosing everything, the team continue to look after a number of local animals in need with limited resources and are relying on volunteers and donations for future redevelopment. They are committed to helping those who cant help themselves and need all the help they can get.
TURKS AND CAICOS RELIEF
A number of pages have been set up independently by those wanting to contribute to the Island's recovery from abroad. The Turks & Caicos Islands are much loved by residents and visitors alike and during times like these, the overwhelming support by the public has been greatly appreciated
