The proceedes collected will provide vital services and bring some level of normalcy to the lives of approximately 300 households. Donations recieved will go to purchase items such as non-perishable goods, baby supplies, cleaning items, bedding, water and sanitation assistance and will also assit with the feeding, clothing and restoration of homes of persons affected on those islands.
