Barbados to lend assistance to the Bahamas

Prime Minister Mia Mottley (FP)

The Government of Barbados has pledged to urgently assist the Government of The Bahamas with relief in light of the devastation caused to that nation by Hurricane Dorian.

Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley explained this evening that she had been in contact with the Government of the Bahamas consistently over the last 48 hours and was deeply saddened by the tremendous devastation and suffering on the Bahamian people that has been unleashed by Dorian.

She pledged that as soon as the all-clear is given, and once we have clarity as to the needs of the Bahamian people as articulated by their Government, the Government of Barbados is ready to despatch personnel and equipment from the Barbados Defence Force and the Barbados Coast Guard.

 It is expected that the recovery and rebuilding exercise would be no small task given the length of time Dorian sat over the islands of The Bahamas and pounded them with winds upward of 200 kilometres per hour.
