The Government of Gibraltar has donated emergency disaster relief supplies, including ten new 4x4 vehicles for the benefit of the Caribbean territories devastated by Hurricane Irma last week.

The supplies from Gibraltar will be delivered by HMS Ocean as part of the British relief effort.

This aid also includes £6,500 worth of building materials and £20,000 worth of general hardware items urgently needed for the communities to undertake the process of repairing and re-building.

Announcing the donation in the company of Governor of Gibraltar General Ed Davis, Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo, said: “The emergency supplies from Gibraltar will go some way to assist in the long term relief efforts. It is only right that we provide aid and assistance for our fellow British Overseas Territories in this time of urgent need.”
