UPDATE 10/11: Arnaud is now on his way to Vieques with goods that will help in the still difficult conditions.
We are still looking to raise more money to be able to help others on the ground, which you can do here:
Once I have more news, I will post them here. As of yet, communications remain sporadic, but Arnaud took with him a satellite device, which should make this easier.
Unfortunately as of yet there aren’t any ways into Vieques or even reliable communication channels. So we do not know yet the extent of damage to our home or business and do not know how best to approach saving what there is to save.
Sending anything via common carriers or even travelers to Vieques is impossible as of right now, since the ferry port in Fajardo and the Vieques airport have been severely damaged.
We are hoping for Arnaud to go to Vieques as soon as possible once it is clear that he can actually get there, communicate from there and get food and supplies to do some good.
When that happens we will personally need financial support and other help in ways we might not realize yet. We will let you know how best to help then.
As for now, if you’d like to help Vieques in general, here is a fundraiser for the island established by people we trust: Gofundme :: ViequesLove
