A two-person GER team headed from Curaçao to Sint Maarten this morning to immediately begin assessments. After receiving insight from Netherlands Red Cross members on current relief efforts, the GER team will arrive prepared to hit the ground running. They will attend their first coordination meeting tonight. More updates to come. A two-person team will be deploying to Sint Maarten this Friday, September 15th to assess damages from Hurricane Irma and how GER can best plug into relief efforts. The team is expected to arrive in Simpson Bay around 1:00pm on Friday with all the kit required to immediately begin work assessing the situation on the Caribbean island.
If you are interested in partnering with GER on this operation or have any questions about the deployment, please reach out to GER CEO Steve McAndrew at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sint Maarten assessment Team Leader Brennan Banks at email@example.com.
