Tobago support for hurricane relief

The Tobago House of Assembly (THA) is leading Tobago’s efforts to provide aid to the Caribbean islands impacted by Hurricane Irma.

The THA is asking the Tobago public to support these efforts by donating emergency relief supplies, including non-perishable food items, clothing and financial support. The Tobago Emergency Management Agency (TEMA) will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to collect all donations.

These supplies can be dropped off at TEMA’s headquarters at Fairfield Complex in Scarborough, or at TEMA’s warehouse, located at Signal Hill next to the Army Camp. You can also show your support by donating to the Trinidad and Tobago Red Cross Society disaster relief fund account at Republic Bank, Account Number 180482517101.

Several Caribbean islands have been affected by the Hurricane, including Antigua and Barbuda, St Martin, Anguilla, St Bart’s, the British and U.S. Virgin Islands, Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

Chief Secretary Kelvin Charles is urging Tobagonians to join the Assembly in supporting our Caribbean neighbours in need.

“Being disaster ready should mean not only that we are ready to respond when we face an emergency, but that we can also step forward to assist our neighbours in their time of need,” Charles stated.

“So, we encourage residents to donate what they can, as early as possible, and drop them in to our centres so they can be delivered to those who have been so harshly affected by the passing of Hurricane Irma.”

Anyone seeking further information can call the 211 Hotline. The Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA), is coordinating regional support for those affected by Hurricane Irma. Account details for CDEMA are listed below.
