Actor and filmmaker Tyler Perry says he used his own personal plane to deliver supplies to help the people of the Bahamas following the devastating impacts of Hurricane Dorian.

The movie icon reportedly used his personal plane to ship water, hygiene items, sleeping bags and other necessities down to the hardest hit areas, according to TMZ, which said he's made two trips to the Abaco Islands.

On the way home Perry also brought back several passengers, including a pregnant woman who needed medical attention, the outlet reported.

Perry had posted on his social media accounts on Wednesday that he would help the island rebuild after 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. 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."
