Following Hurricane Irma, most buildings and the infrastructure of Jost Van Dyke were decimated, including most communication channels to the outside.
We have been happy to receive post storm reports that the storm’s survivors were gathering at Foxy’s Tamarind Bar which turned into a community kitchen and still functions that way. Other restaurants with sealed containers of food such as Soggy Dollar and Hendo’s combined resources bringing these items to Foxy’s.
We have been fielding numerous questions and lots of people are reaching out to help or to learn about our future. We invite you to look at the NY Times article and also the BBC video clip . As far as specific plans, please stay tuned for details.
If you would like to donate to relief effort, the Jost Van Dykes Preservation Society, launched by Foxy is working on Aid relief for JVD.
JVDPS is a locally based BVI, not-for-profit, organization with a ten-year history of executing various heritage, education and conservation projects on Jost Van Dykes and its adjacent smaller cays and managing grant-funded projects.
JVDPS is also established as a U.S. 501c3 Not for Profit charitable organization. US Taxpayers and international donors can make tax deductible contributions that will go towards direct benefit of Jost Van Dyke.
The New York Times reports that after Hurricane Irma’s winds annihilated many of the homes here on Jost Van Dyke, Foxy’s Tamarind Bar and Restaurant has become something else entirely: the island’s de facto command center and lifeline. To read the full article, click here.
