The Caribbean’s response to disasters during this year’s expected above average Atlantic Hurricane Season is being significantly enhanced with a humanitarian ship on standby in the region’s waters.

This vessel is fully equipped to support countries impacted by weather events and other disasters.

Executive Director of the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency C-DEMA Elizabeth Riley disclosed yesterday that the vessel will be launched through Global Support and Development, GSD, a non-governmental rapid disaster response and humanitarian organization based in Amsterdam.

She said for the first time, GSD is providing the region with assistance in strengthening its disaster readiness.
