CARICOM committed to supporting countries hit by Hurricane Sandy

CARICOM SG Irwin LaRocque

Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretary-General Irwin LaRocque Wednesday said that the regional grouping remains committed to providing support “where necessary” to Jamaica, Haiti and Cuba following the passage of Hurricane Sandy late last month.

The hurricane has been blamed for nearly 100 deaths in the Caribbean as well as millions of dollars in damage to the infrastructure of several countries.

In messages to the respective governments, LaRocque extended his sympathies and noted “with distress the tragic loss of life and extensive damage wrought to key sectors such as agriculture and tourism”.

    I need to hear what exactly CARICOM is planning to do especially in the case of Cuba who has helped us so tremendously over the decades. Action not words.

      I can’t help Cuba more than the others just because he is Dominican . CARICOM is a regional thing not a Dominican thing
