Zonta International releases statement on Hurricane Irma

As Hurricane Irma barrels through the Caribbean this week, our thoughts are with our Zonta club members in Puerto Rico, the British Virgin Islands, Bahamas, Florida and up the east coast of the United States. While we do not yet know the full effects of the storm and its impact on our members, it is already clear that the islands in the path of this storm have been severely damaged, and we know many people will be dealing with the loss of homes and livelihoods and unknown challenges to come in the months ahead.

The global Zonta International community keeps all those in the path of Hurricane Irma in our thoughts and will update our members and friends as we hear from Zontians in the affected areas.
