Samenwerkende Fondsen Cariben make € 500,000 available for emergency aid after Hurricane Irma
The Samenwerkende Fondsen Cariben will transfer an amount of € 500,000 to the Red Cross to provide emergency assistance on the islands of St. Maarten, Saba and St. Eustatius, hit by Hurricane Irma. The foundations have looked with dismay at the total devastation that the hurricane has caused. Waiting is not an option. Under these circumstances, the social initiatives that they support, cannot continue with their important work. Due to the fact that the foundations themselves have no infrastructure for emergency aid, it has been decided to make this amount available to the Red Cross.
