Herself reeling from the flooding in Houston, Texas, Rudy Live explained, “To see my friends and family members suffering tears me a part. We haven’t had a major hurricane to hit the Virgin Islands since 1995, hurricane Marilyn was my first hurricane experience. Many nights we had no food and little to no water. We relied on our neighbors to supply us with what we didn’t have. It was rough back then. It’s even worse now because so many of our islands are presently toredn apart by both hurricanes within the matter of weeks.”
Grace King, founder of Anatha, a 501c3 foundation helping teenagers in the Virgin Islands added “I have worked with Rudy Live in the past on various give back projects in St.Thomas and St.Croix through RudyLive Foundation. When I spoke to her about joining forces with Anatha Foundation to help us provide food and shelter to help the displaced families of Hurricane Irma and Maria in the Virgin Islands and other Caribbean Islands she immediately jumped on board .”
