ST. GEORGE, GRENADA, OCT 05. 2017, (GIS):-
 More than 120,000 dollars have been poured into the Bank Account activated by the National Disaster Management Agency NaDMA to assist countries affected by hurricanes Irma and Maria.

That announcement was made by Sen. Winston Garraway, Minister with Responsibility for Disaster Management, during a Post Cabinet Briefing on Tuesday.

Government has already pledged 1.7 Million Dollars towards the hurricane relief efforts, and Sen. Garraway says cheques are being processed to go directly to the beneficiaries.

“I know there are other initiatives by some companies, they’re raising funds and they’re looking forward to a day to make a donation to NADMA for this relief account; but we will continue to emphasize the need to give”.

Sen. Garraway says Grenada was the only country in the region with some critically needed medical supplies which were flown to the hospital in Dominica by a private citizen using his private plane.

On Friday, a Venezuelan Military Cargo Plane left Grenada with more than 7,000 pounds of fruits, vegetables and dried goods for Dominica.
