I spoke to Marilyn & Mary (& the rest of the gang) this morning, they have put out the following requests to anyone travelling to Placencia to assist in the next few days.
The following are urgently needed and it would be great if those going back in the next few days can contribute:
batteries, a variety of sizes, but especially "D"s and "C"s
personal care items such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, etc.
first aid supplies, medical supplies, things like ibuprofen, Tylenol, antibiotic cream & wound dressings, bandages.
Oh, boy, my head is spinning. This is a partial list. Obviously the rebuilding effort will be enormous and with so much of the world's attention focused elsewhere, the usual outpouring of aid donations will be a slow trickle, so, any $$$ you can donate to Marty's deal would be fantastic.
Obviously food is needed, but shipping it in suitcases is difficult.
Otherwise that group from Caves Branch, Marilyn, Mary, Dwayne, Kerry, Candy, Barb, Bill and Lisa are okay, they sounded very tired, and a little scared too, but are beginning to marshall themselves to do whatever needs to be done.
There is (obviously) no power and no phones in the village right now. All villagers have been accounted for, apparently, but no one can confirm that for sure.
God be with them, and keep them in your prayers.
