Dolphin Water Taxi is reaching out for assistance to help those in need of Food/water on Tortola.
The USVI seems to be getting secured, but there is a much bigger problem on Tortola in the BVI where people have gone days without food. Any food thta is reaching the island is being scavanged and not reaching many of the residents.
We are hearing from our BVI staff there from time to time via text message when they get an occasional signal. They are cut off from everything. The BVI government is basically not functioning.
Dolphin Water Taxi has partnered with a 60ft cat in St Croice and has been sending relief food every other day to Tortola and then able to use our vehicles and personnel there to help distribute. For now we are trying to make sure our staff can get food. The 500lbs we sent yesterday reached its destination inland on Tortola and people who have not eaten in days finally got some relief.
The vessel evacuated 30 Americans on its return voyage to St Croix who arrived safely yesterday later afternoon. Another food drop and evac trip is planned for tomorrow and every other day until the situation is resolved.
Please help in any way that you can.
Dolphin has created a GoFundMe page to help raise money for emergency relief and then the rebuilding process, which our boats will be an integral part of for the forseeable future.
