In the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, many islands in the Caribbean were left with historic destruction, widespread power outages, and severe property damage. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families, first responders and volunteers who are working to save those in immediate need and those who have had their lives forever changed by this storm. What we have a humanitarian crisis impacting multiple islands right now. This Caribbean Relief Project represents an effort to mobilize throughout our communities to meet that humanitarian challenge.
