    For some, clearing all the debris is overwhelming, or maybe they are not physically able or have little support. I would be willing to build a team to come to houses to help clear debris…..would this be of use? ideas of how to spread the word, to get volunteers and find those in need of help?

  2. No change BVi says:

    why even announce if you are not going to enforce or assist in cleanup BVI government
