Tobago support for Hurricane Irma relief efforts

Tobago THA's Hurricane Irma relief flyer

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

Chief among them are Antigua and Barbuda, St Martin, Anguilla, St Bart’s, the British and US Virgin Islands, Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

The THA is therefore asking Tobago residents to donate emergency relief supplies, including non-perishable food items, clothing and financial support to the Tobago Emergency Management Agency (TEMA).

Donations can be dropped off daily between 9 am and 5 pm at TEMA’s headquarters at Fairfield Complex in Scarborough, or at TEMA’s warehouse at Signal Hill; next to the Army Camp.

The THA said the public may also show their 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.

THA Chief Secretary, Kelvin Charles said, "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. 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:
