  1. God help the people from Antigua and Barbuda
    I will do what I can to start collections here in Makati, PHILIPPINES to help as much as we can
    We understand hurricanes (we call them typhoons here) as we had one few years ago with 300km winds and surf surge that killed thousands of people as most people here have bamboo huts or at best not well built houses
    Let me know how we can best send you any money or other assistance
    We shall all pray for you every day God bless you all

    Sir Karl McLean, KT
