Helping People Recover Their Lives.
On August 14, 2021, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck the southern peninsula of Ayiti. We are closely monitoring the situation with community partners on the ground. We encourage those who are interested in supporting relief efforts to make contributions to the Ayiti Community Trust’s Earthquake Relief Fund.
The Caribbean Disaster Relief and Recovery Alliance (CDRRA) developed as the byproduct of an overwhelming outpouring of support and a call to action to respond to the widespread destruction caused by Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean. An emergency meeting was held on 8 September in Bowie, MD and was attended by persons representing the Caribbean Diaspora in the DC, Maryland and Virginia (DMV) area.
Provide timely relief assistance as well as long-term recovery support to families and communities in the Caribbean region through a coordinated effort in partnership with other businesses, community organizations, non-profits and professionals.
Volunteer opportunities are available for those who would like to donate their time and services to the recovery or relief effort.
