Historically, one of the most powerful storms to hit the Atlantic, Hurricane Irma has left destruction and heartache in its wake. While Jumby Bay Island and the main island of Antigua was spared of a direct hit, the sister island of Barbuda was utterly devastated, with more than 90% of the island infrastructure destroyed. Jumby Bay Island sent two ferries and crew to assist in the evacuation and recovery efforts of Barbuda’s people.
In the meantime, the Jumby Bay Fund has created a separate pool for contributors to donate directly to the recovery efforts for Barbuda. To help now, visit the Jumby Bay Fund Donation Page and elect to “Apply My Donation” to “Hurricane Irma Relief For Barbuda.”
