BENEFITING: CHANGING TIDES FOUNDATION
This is official CTF Disaster Relief: Caribbean Project. Our team has been incredibly busy over the last few months gathering information and assessing the damage throughout the Caribbean since before Hurricanes Irma and Maria made landfall.
As such, we have partnered with a few US-based organizations such as YachtAid Global, Virgin Islands Montessori School, and the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands for information, contacts and logistics, as well as many organizations and individuals on the ground throughout the Caribbean islands that have been affected by both Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
Any and all funds donated through this project will go directly toward providing any and all materials necessary to address the immediate and specific needs of each individual community, focusing on necessities: food and water; power; sanitary and hygienic needs; and materials and labor needed to rebuild these communities that were devastated by these unprecedented natural disasters.
We have volunteers traveling to St. Thomas in February to implement solar refrigeration units, community and individual water filtration systems, and solar panels, batteries and rechargers with large capabilities. Aid will be administered through the Virgin Islands Monessori School and the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands.
We will extend our efforts to as many communities as we can reach throughout the entire Caribbean, including Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. It is important to understand that the needs that exist today may be very different than those that exist in 2 weeks or 2 months from now, therefore the distribution of the funds will vary based on the needs at that time.
Our goal is to provide as much relief as we can in phases, as funds are raised, and directing those funds towards the specific needs that exist at that time as specified above.
The relief and rebuilding efforts will be long and arduous and we are committed to doing everything in our power to help those affected and to drive attention and awareness to those that need it the most.
