St. Peters Community Meeting with the RED CROSS

Thursday April 26th, 6pm Rupert I. Maynard Community Center
In collaboration with the St. Peters neighbourhood, the Netherlands Red Cross, through its St. Maarten branch, is organizing an information session about our current recovery programs in St. Peters . Currently, the Red Cross has three programs aimed at helping families who were been impacted by Hurricane Irma. The Red Cross has launched the second phase of the Supermarket Voucher Programme through which families in need receive Red Cross food vouchers allowing them to purchase groceries in participating supermarkets. In addition, the Home Repair Programme has completed its first assessments, with technical officers providing expertise and the Red Cross providing materials to support families in the repair of their homes. Finally, the School Meal Programme, which provides breakfasts and hot lunches to thousands of students each day, has been extended until the end of the school year.
