One year ago, in September 2017, Hurricane Irma devastated the Caribbean and Hurricane Maria was on its way.

So were Serve On's International Response Team volunteers.

We found, in the the British Virgin Islands, scenes of utter destruction.

But we found, also, the most incredible, resilient people ready to put their communities back together.

All they needed was the right help.

We were proud to play our small part, along with the friends we made from @VISAR, from @VirginUnite, @RFAMountsBay @RoyalMarines @UKaid and others,  and our collaborative partners from @TeamRubiconUK.

Serve On will be back there soon to complete the emergency communications system we started on #VirginGorda, and to see again some wonderful people. #BVIStrong.

In the meantime, here's a little reminder of our time there.

It takes money for Serve On to give the help it does to communities at home and abroad. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated. https://cafdonate.cafonline.org/7081
