Tyler Perry has made it his duty to take care of the people in the Bahamas. He recently loaded up his own plane with supplies for people on the islands and made two trips there already.

According to TMZ, his private plane has been flown to the Abaco Islands with supplies including water, juice, diapers, sleeping bags, hygiene products and more.

“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 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 is hoping to send more shipments to the Islands.

During the trips, seven islanders who needed medical attention were flown to the U.S. The seven people included small children,  a pregnant woman and others.

The Category five storm hit the island last week,  killing 43 people and leaving many displaced.
