After the passing of Hurricane Irma, the strongest storm to ever impact the Caribbean islands, the sister island of the twin-island state, Antigua and Barbuda, is in disarray. High winds and flooding has resulted in uninhabitable, if not destroyed, homes throughout the island, leaving many of the inhabitants without a roof over their heads, and forced to move onto Antigua as Hurricane Jose crosses nearby this weekend.


If you’d like to volunteer/donate to #ReliefForBarbuda, contact the poster in the screenshot, or the person in charge of the drop off points in your location. Money, food, clothing or just a signal boost to inform Antiguans & Barbudans living in the U.S would be appreciated.
