Thank you beyond words for helping with this effort to aid Ile a Vache. Every boat makes a big difference. Please chat with Bamba Maru, they have discussed this a lot with me and they are fundraising through the IRG online site at http://www.gofundme.com/StormMatthew, sending to friends, family, colleagues and social media network. It is already working and they have earmarked funds for Bamba Maru coming in now!
While some of these funds can be reasonably used for fuel, we hope that a vast majoriy of the income can be spent locally for goods in close-by towns such as Les Cayes and delivered to Ile a Vache - that helps enormously to boost the local economy rather than, for example, the DR... The latest list of supplies needed - from mayor Amazal's office - is to be found in the middle of IRG's Logistics Page: http://members.internationalrescuegroup.org/group/hurricane-matthew-response-logistics
