The Caribbean Tourism Organization has activated its Hurricane Relief Fund. The fund is being run through GoFundMe and has been activated to help raise money for families and countries to help them rebuild after damage from hurricanes, particularly in the wake of the devastation caused by Category 5 Hurricane Irma.
Irma impacted numerous member countries and the CTO has now announced that all money raised through the Relief Fund will be sent directly to member destinations that have been affected by the catastrophic storm, which hit some countries with winds up to 185 mph.
‘The damage caused by the force of Hurricane Irma is an important example of why we must do whatever is possible to provide financial relief to those who need it most. It’s through this fund that the CTO channels monetary assistance to our impacted member states,’ CTO secretary general Hugh Riley said. ‘The CTO appreciates all donations to assist in the recovery efforts in these countries.’
