While Hurricane Dorian is still battling down on the islands of the Bahamas, The Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) is expressing their sympathies to all those affected by this storm, and is committing to helping the islands rebuild.
In a statement, the CTO says they express their “deepest regret and sadness over the loss of life and damage done to the Abacos and Grand Bahama Island by dangerous category 5 hurricane Dorian.
In the wake of this monstrous storm, we have witnessed the pain of those who lost loved ones, the agony of so many who lost their homes and all their belongings, and the angst of an entire Caribbean concerned for the welfare of the people of these islands.”
However, the CTO is committed to show the people of the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama full support. The CTO adds that the “Islands of the Bahamas and the Caribbean tourism family will navigate the road to recovery together and emerge stronger.”
With the greatest impact of Hurricane Dorian being felt in the northernmost islands of the Abacos and Grand Bahama, the CTO has activated its Hurricane Relief Fund, which has been established to help people and countries rebuild after disasters.
