Caribbean Tourism OrganizationThe Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) has activated its CTO Relief Fund through GoFundMe to help families and countries rebuild after hurricanes, particularly in the wake of the massive category 5 Hurricane Irma, which has impacted a number of member countries.

All of the money raised through the CTO’s Relief Fund will be sent directly to CTO-member destinations 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.”

The Cabinet office advises that all government offices will re-open today at the usual hours of operation, except on islands where there have been evacuations.

Director general at the Ministry of Tourism Joy Jibrilu recently gave an update on the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. Watch an interview with Jibrilu here.
