Estonian Foreign Ministry provides 30,000 euros for hurricane-ravaged Caribbean islands

REPORTfrom Government of Estonia Published on 15 Sep 2017 —View Original

The Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs will allocate 30,000 euros as disaster relief in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. The island nations that were hardest hit and are in need of humanitarian assistance are Antigua and Barbuda, Anguilla, Montserrat, and Saint Kitts and Nevis.

Foreign Minister Sven Mikser says a number of countries have pledged aid for the island nations. “Estonia is also responding to the plea for assistance to meet basic needs such as availability of clean drinking water or provision of medical care.”

Vital infrastructure such as shops, a power plant, roads and ports have been damaged, depriving people of the opportunity to earn a living.

The Foreign Ministry aid will be given from development and humanitarian aid funds through the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), which will channel the support to the island nations.

Hurricane Irma Appeal launched by Cayman Islands Red Cross

The Cayman Islands Red Cross (CIRC) is launching its Hurricane Irma appeal in light of the devastation suffered by the Eastern Caribbean islands as the storm continues to wreak havoc throughout the region.

“We really don’t know the extent of the damage as full assessments haven’t been conducted yet, but based on what we have seen and heard Irma has been catastrophic for several nations,” explains CIRC Director Jondo Obi.  “The Anguilla Red Cross has lost its headquarters, and as has now been widely reported the island of Barbuda has basically been declared uninhabitable,” she continues.

“We are still working on establishing contact with our counterparts throughout the region, and those with whom we have reached have stated that they are physically well but emotionally devastated,” adds Mrs. Obi.

The CIRC’s Irma appeal is strictly for monetary donations, and the organisation urges residents *not* to make arrangements to send supplies to the affected areas.

“The arrival of unsolicited donations into a disaster zone is at times referred to as the second disaster,” explains Deputy Director Carolina Ferreira.  “The items that most people would like to donate, like clothing, shoes, household items and toys, are not a priority in the immediate aftermath of a catastrophe, and when they arrive into affected areas they create numerous problems for workers on the ground,”  she explains.

Unsolicited donations are not only difficult and costly to send, but in areas where major ports have been affected and alternative locations are being utilised they become difficult for organisations to access and collect, if they are even made aware of their existence at all.  Furthermore clearing and collecting such goods means diverting personnel and equipment away from more  pressing tasks, like damage assessments.  There is also the issue of sorting and storage, as such widespread devastation means that many buildings have been affected and there is a shortage of space. Lastly, often times the affected population is not in a position to be able to receive these goods at the time when they are sent.

“The Cayman Islands Red Cross is a branch of the British Red Cross, and the funds we collect here go directly to the most affected areas as part of the larger appeal by the British Red Cross and the International Federation,” adds Keith Ford, Disaster Manager for the organisation. “The people of these Eastern Caribbean islands are already going to need a lot of help, but the truth is that Jose is following closely behind a similar path and set to turn into a major hurricane itself. We must help.”

Persons wishing to donate to the Cayman Islands Red Cross Hurricane Irma Caribbean Appeal can do so via direct deposit to Bank of Butterfield Account 1360350540060 or at our Cayman Corporate Centre office on 27 Hospital Road, 1st Floor. For more information, contact 916-3345 or [email protected].

It will be the first competitive race for many local swimmers after the summer break. The event will be followed by a 400m swim for those 12 years and under.

“Sea swims a great activity to participate with family and friends from all age groups and help you stay active and fit. If you can swim, but haven’t entered a sea swim before, the Foster’s Sea Swim is an excellent event for first timers,” said a CIASA spokesperson.

The race begins at Governor’s Beach at 4:00 p.m. with registration taking place between 3:00 p.m. and 3:45 p.m. A loop course will be set up with the race also ending at Governor’s Beach.

Termination and de-registration of Cayman regulated funds: consider action now to reduce 2018 fees

From Harneys

Managers of Cayman Islands regulated funds who are reviewing whether to wind any funds down before the end of 2017 may want to act promptly to avoid or reduce the annual 2018 Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA) fees and related costs. Regulated funds which file their de-registration documents with CIMA before 31 December 2017 will not be liable to pay the 2018 CIMA fees, currently US$4,268 for a regulated feeder fund and US$3,048 for a regulated master fund. Funds may also save related service provider fees, including annual audit fees, once they have de-registered.
