Critical resources are urgently needed, and your contributions will support our friends in the Caribbean as they continue the difficult process of recovering and rebuilding.”

Clarien Bank matched $10,000 in donations. The funds will be managed through the Bermuda Red Cross for direct distribution to Red Cross societies from around the world currently assisting with multi-country relief and recovery efforts in the Caribbean.

Bermuda Red Cross Executive Director Ann Spencer-Arscott commented: “I am always so humbled by the overwhelming support provided to Bermuda Red Cross when we launch a disaster appeal.

“When we see the devastation that has occurred to our sister Islands in the Caribbean, we are reminded that this could have been us and we need to remember how important it is for everyone to be prepared for any eventuality than can occur in our lives. It has been a pleasure to partner with Clarien Bank and with their help, the funds raised has been increased by $26,975.”

      Izzy pop you took the words out of my mouth. If they can do that for other countries why can’t they do that for those in need here in Bermuda. I can’t help but think PR stunt.
