As part of The Chahal Foundation’s operating objective, to aid in the disaster relief efforts, we are activating the #HurricaneIrma2017 Disaster Relief Fund, to support the communities impacted.
Our Founder, Gurbaksh Chahal, will be donating the first $100,000 for the cause. 100% of all the proceeds will go towards rebuilding and recovering the communities.
Hurricane Irma is a powerful tropical cyclone, the strongest ever recorded in the Atlantic basin outside the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico. It is a Category 5 hurricane with winds of 155 mph, which are strong enough to uproot trees, bring down power poles and rip off the roofs.
Mandatory evacuation orders have been issued for barrier islands, coastal communities, low-lying areas and homes across Florida.
- Estimated 6.3 million Florida residents have already been ordered to evacuate.
- The storm has ravaged parts of the Caribbean, where officials are calling it a “nuclear hurricane.”
- This has caused catastrophic damage in Barbuda, St. Barthelemy, St Martin, Anguilla and the Virgin Islands resulting in already 24 deaths as of September 9th.
- In Barbuda, over 90% of the island is now destroyed and inhabitable.
South Florida is bracing for the worst as this “nuclear hurricane’” Irma approaches at a Category 5 level. This could be the biggest disaster for the region since Hurricane Andrew hit in 1992.
The President has declared emergencies in Florida, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands as Hurricane Irma prepares for landfall.
Many lives, homes, and businesses have already been destroyed and the damage for this hurricane is unprecedented.
The recovery effort is set to take months or even years.
Please join us to help restore the lives of people in need.
