To assist recovery efforts in the British Virgin Islands in the wake of Hurricane Irma, Rosewood Little Dix Bay set up a Virgin Gorda Hurricane Irma Disaster Relief fundraiser on YouCaring.com. The fundraiser was open from September 12 through October 10, 2017 and received 292 donations totaling $78,071. The money raised was given to Unite BVI, a not-for-profit foundation based in the BVI that is committed to supporting the island’s reconstruction by distributing aid and much needed supplies to communities in Virgin Gorda and Tortola.
“Following the hurricane, our main priority has been to help our island and the local community recover from this disaster,” said Rosewood Little Dix Bay’s managing director Andreas Pade. “We sincerely thank our loyal guests and Rosewood family for their generous contributions which will undoubtedly make a positive impact on our beloved island community.
In the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Irma, Rosewood Little Dix Bay donated vital supplies including water, gasoline and transport to Virgin Islands Search and Rescue and helped supply generators that assisted in providing power to Spanish Town. As recovery efforts progress, Rosewood Little Dix Bay is committed to re-opening and continues to support community leaders and local government officials in efforts to rebuild the island.
