Recovery and resiliency
Empowering communities across the Caribbean and Latin America
We respond with urgency and sensitivity in times of disaster. In the medium-term, we help build more resilient communities by providing funding, technology and upskilling to support disaster preparedness and recovery capabilities. The result: people are better able to cope with future adversity.
We’re proud of the Foundation’s work since it was set up in 2017. Here are some of its achievements:
- Emergency supplies distributed to thousands in in BVI, Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI), Dominica, Antigua and Barbuda, and Puerto Rico via a US$100,000 donation to Shelterbox
- Primary and secondary students in Dominica, Anguilla, and TCI are learning in stronger, safer facilities due to grants totaling US$750,000
- The people of Dominica are closer to getting their only public library rebuilt as a result of a US$200,000 grant
- Thousands of young people in vulnerable communities are learning new skills via a US$70,000 donation to: Puerto Rico (US$25,000 to PR4PR), Curacao (US$25,000 to Curacao Cares) and Jamaica (US$20,000 to the Flow Foundation for the Duhaney Park Primary School)
- We donated US$100,000 to support those affected by floods in Trinidad and most recently granted US$100,000 to Walkers Institute for Regenerative Research, Education and Design (WIRRED). This Barbados-based NGO focuses on enhancing ecosystems to help communities adapt and be resilient in the face of climate change.
