Tyler Perry promised to help, and to keep his word, he reportedly used his personal plane to ship water, hygiene items, sleeping bags, and other necessities down to the hardest-hit areas, according to CNN, also stating he’s made two trips to the Abaco Islands so far.
The movie-maker posted on his social media accounts Wednesday stating he would help the island rebuild once the storm had passed.
“To all the incredible people of the Bahamas who have welcomed me and called me an adoptive son, I want you to know that I am watching closely, and as soon as I can, I will be there to do whatever I can to help you rebuild stronger and better,” he wrote on Instagram. “You’re not only in my heart and my prayers, you’re in my blood. God bless you. Stay Bahamas strong. The sun will shine again.”
Perry also brought back several passengers on his returning trips, including a pregnant woman who needed medical attention, the article reported.
CNN reached out to Perry’s team over email seeking more information but has yet to hear back.
