Shluchim Stranded After Hurricane

S. Martin Shluchim Moshe and Sara Chanowitz are stranded on the Caribbean Island after Hurricane Irma, which is in total devastation.

Rabbi Moshe and Sara Chanowitz are the Chabad Shluchim in St Martin in the Caribbean Island.

They are stuck on the Island with their 5 young children. The Island was caught in the eye of Hurricane Irma and is in total devastation. People from their community, as well as many others, lost their homes. There is no power on the Island.

Their home is not livable. Their family is staying in the synagogue which barely survived. They have a generator which will last them 1-2 days, after that they will have no food.

Please help get this family to safe shelter, and help those who lost their homes have food to eat, fuel and shelter. They need help to start rebuilding their homes and their lives.

Is this for money?
Other than a funding drive what is/can practically being done to get him to a safe place?

What about arrangements for transportation to a safe location,
such as a helicopter?

Besides the devastation that they need to rebuild, it's extremely expensive to get them off the island to a safe place. Please give all you can to help them

They cant even get a plane now since there is no place for one to land. Same issue for helicopter. We need to storm the heavens!

calm down everyone
there are thousands of other people on the island. Do you think they are going to be left to die? They are all going to be helped and/or evacuated. Why the need for a private jet?

They have 5 children years 8 and below. In very dangerous situation
We should be helping your young pure children.

Anybody have a large yacht
What about by boat. Perhaps a cruise ship can be sent to pick up people on many of these islands. Just sharing Ideas no idea how i can help otherwise. Will make a donation.

The entire island needs help
There are thousands of people - women, children, babies - on the island who lost EVERYTHING and don't even have a mattress to sleep on. Very few are fortunate enough to have a generator for even five minutes. I should hope they had stocked up on non perishable food and water prior to the storm as advised by every weather site the week prior to the storm arriving. The US is trying to arrange transport for citizens; hopefully they can jump on.
