Robert DeNiro Pledges To Rebuild Barbuda After 95% Was Destroyed By Hurricane Irma
Actor Robert DeNiro has made a pledge to rebuild the island of Barbuda after Hurricane Irma caused millions of dollars in devastation to the island. Irma hit the small area on September 6, devastating the small island to the point where most of the buildings are uninhabitable.
DeNiro owns the Paradise Found Nobu resort on the island, along with billionaire James Packer. The actor has made a vow to assist with the island’s recovery efforts in the wake of the devastation that occurred after Irma. The island of Barbuda lies 250 miles east of Puerto Rico.
In a statement, DeNiro remarked, “We are beyond saddened to learn of the devastation in Barbuda caused from Hurricane Irma and look forward to working with the Paradise Found Nobu team, the Barbuda Council, GOAB and the entire Barbuda community to successfully rebuild what nature has taken away from us.”
