Tropical Storm Erika killed at least 30 people on the tiny Caribbean island of Dominica Republic and dozens more are missing and bodies are believed to remain buried under landslides. With so much assistance needed the Prime Minister of the Caribbean country is asking for international help after the storm caused damage that will cost half the country’s annual GDP to repair. Tonight we can tell you that Belize is included in the list of countries that will send relief the country. Today the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that the relief will come in the form of $125,000.
The decision to assist was made after the Prime Minister of Dominica, Honorable Roosevelt Skerrit wrote to Government appealing for emergency assistance.
The contribution was deposited today.
