The Confederation will render short, medium and long-term assistance to these countries primarily in the following areas:
Donations of food, water and supplies.
Financial Assistance to students and parents who have been evacuated to Antigua from Barbuda to assist resettlement in schools.
The provision of financial and other resources to facilitate the restoration of service to members by Credit Unions in Dominica.
Assistance with the provision of temporary structures to provide accommodation for schools.
General financial and technical support to Credit Unions and their members.
Initial financial and other contributions have already been made to Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda and Dominica but urgent assistance is necessary. Accordingly, Credit Unions, Credit Union members and Credit Union Leagues, members and citizens of the Diaspora Community, are urged to support this relief effort. Unofficial estimates after Hurricane Irma, indicated that approximately US$1.9 billion would have been required for reconstruction in Anguilla, Barbuda, BVI and St. Kitts and Nevis.
The cost of Hurricane Maria’s impact on Dominica, is still to be quantified.
Credit Unions are urged to set up special Hurricane Relief accounts to allow individual members to make donations. Contributions can be remitted to the Confederation by credit card authorizations, bank draft or wire transfer to:
