Relief Pours in to Sint Maarten From Countries Worldwide, Evacuations Continue

Relief efforts have been pouring in to Sint Maarten’s Princess Julianna International Airport. Those efforts stepped up starting on Sunday, after Hurricane Jose had passed the island.

A number of countries have been sending support, as well as a few charitable organizations. Incoming flights have been bringing in supplies for the island and shuttling citizens off as they depart.

Here are a few highlights.

I fell in love with the island of Saint Martin the first time I visited to celebrate my 40th birthday in May of 2009. Since then, I've spent most birthdays there, and have visited countless other times getting to know this wonderful place and the friendly locals that make it so special. I adore the culture, the people, the community, and the beauty of this stunning island. SXM Strong is a website that I started to support humanitarian relief efforts following Hurricane Irma. There was no plan, it just evolved as I witnessed the devastation that Irma caused the island and the huge need to communicate and disseminate information about what had happened and how people could help support this island and its people.
