Giving to Hurricane Beryl Relief Across the Caribbean

While Hurricane Beryl is no longer a threat to any Caribbean state, its impact remains, says Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management (CDEMA).

The agency says the focus is now on assisting Grenada and its Grenadines of Carriacou and Petite Martinique, and the Grenadine islands of Bequia, Union Island, Canouan and Mayreau in St. Vincent. Initial assessments have also been received for Jamaica and the Cayman Islands, however, the situation in Haiti is continuing.

CDEMA participating states as well as the regional and international partners continue to support the ongoing response efforts being coordinated through the Regional Response Mechanism (RRM).


The Cabinet of Grenada made the following decision July 4, 2024:
• During the period ending July 31, 2024, all relief items coming to Grenada should be addressed to the National Disaster Management Agency (NaDMA). Relief items coming in and addressed to individuals or other organizations will be treated as normal goods except if these are turned over to NaDMA.
• To manage the efficient coordination and logistical arrangements, vessels delivering relief items are advised that Port St. Georges is their first port of entry.

The Government of Grenada will accept cash contributions through the above bank account. Additionally, a needs list has been published above and the Government will accept contributions based on items in the list.
