(WTXL) — Atlanta entertainment mogul Tyler Perry is using his own personal seaplane to deliver relief supplies to the Abaco Islands, according to TMZ.

On Thursday, Perry used his private seaplane based in Nassau 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," TMZ reported.

He also reportedly brought seven people, including children back to the U.S. on return trips who needed medical attention.

In a social media post earlier this week, Perry wrote that he was planning to help.

"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. "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."
