Celebrating the Caribbean and its Diaspora
HURRICANE RELIEF EFFORTS
The Caribbean Heritage Organization (CHO) joins the world community in offering our thoughts, prayers and support for all those devastated by hurricanes Harvey, Irma and José.
We have gotten many inquiries on how one may assist with recovery efforts, especially the victims in the Caribbean.
We have compiled a few links for you to get more information about how you can help.
For the USVI, please reach out to Delegate Stacey Plaskett’s office at https://plaskett.house.gov.
The Consulate of Antigua & Barbuda in New York has set up a website with relief information. Please see https://www.abconsulate.nyc/
In addition to the Red Cross, we recommend contacting the Embassy in Washington, DC or the local Consul General’s office of each affected island.
CHO will continue to support the relief efforts in the U.S. and the Caribbean in any way we can. It is during these challenging times we are reminded of the generosity and spirit of humanity that exists all over the world.
