Red Cross supports appeal for donation for hurricane victims

The Barbados Red Cross Society has expressed support for the appeal by the International Federation of the Red Cross for donations to support the victims of powerful hurricanes Irma and Jose that have hit the Caribbean and Americas region.

The International Federation of the Red Cross has launched an initial appeal for the equivalent of 1.1 million Swiss Francs for Barbuda and Antigua. The Appeal figure will be adjusted upwards following full field assessments.

Hundreds of Red Cross volunteers are playing a central role in relief efforts and helping evacuated communities faced by the catastrophic situation.

The Antigua and Barbuda Red Cross has informed that there are adequate amounts of food and general supplies already assigned for the victims but what is urgently required is financial assistance to help persons rebuild their homes.

The International Federation of the Red Cross is paying special attention to the immediate provision of emergency shelter and health requirements, including water and sanitation needs in affected areas. The relief operation will place heavy emphasis on cash – ensuring that people who lost their homes and belongings have financial resources to navigate the coming difficult weeks.

    If the Red Cross is a charity organization why do they need to be driving around a high end jeep like a Range Rover.That money could have been spent better on those who needs help.How make the decisions for this organization.They should be fired.

    The red cross is a fraud .We have seen the documentaries on Youtube. They collect millions do little or nothing and the money disappears.

    I no longer donate money. I do not trust them. I go with food, clothing, etc. I read a lot lot lot and the truth is stranger than fiction.
