Foreign Relations coordinates aids to Dominican expats affected by Irma

The Ministry of Foreign Relations is in charge of coordinating national efforts to assist Dominican expatriates affected by Irma in the Caribbean. Thousands of Dominicans live in Turks & Caicos, Antigua & Barbuda and Sint Maarten and St. Martin, as well as the US (St. Thomas and St. John) and British Virgin Islands, islands that suffered major damages during the Category 5 storm.

The Presidency has authorized that a Dominican Air Force plane land in St. Martin with humanitarian aid as soon as authorized by the island authorities.

As reported, the serious damage on the island has isolated the population, affecting a large number of Dominicans living there, including the staff of the Dominican consulate.

Flights to the islands have been cancelled given the major damage sustained by the airports.
