Watch: Exclusive Al Jazeera Report on Conditions in Saint Martin and the Road to Recovery

There’s been no shortage of coverage for the island of Saint Martin in a time where a lot of coverage is absolutely needed. I found this piece produced by Al Jazeera and wanted to share it with you.

The video is a bit dated, released on September 11, 2017, but there was a lot of footage in it that I haven’t yet seen, and that’s what made it more interesting to me, and also worthwhile sharing now.

If anything, it serves as a stark reminder to me that the people on the island need so much help. If you can, please head over to the SXM Strong donate page. We’ve listed a few select organizations that we’ve chosen to support. And, of course, any and all donations are needed and appreciated. Everything helps!

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.
