Entertainment mogul Tyler Perry on Wednesday vowed to help the hurricane-ravaged Bahamas. In a social media post, he pledged that “as soon as I can, I will be there to do whatever I can to help you rebuild stronger and better.”
And did he ever.
TMZ reported, Perry used his private seaplane to make two deliveries to the islands. Among the supplies were “much-needed water, juice, sleeping bags, diapers, various hygiene products and a lot of other basic necessities.”
During the return trips, they brought back seven passengers, including small children, a pregnant woman and others who needed medical attention.
Earlier this week, the Madea star went on social media expressing his mission to support residents in turmoil.
“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,” Perry wrote in a heartfelt social media post.
