Hurricane Appeal

The Caribbean has been hit by a series of hurricanes, leaving behind a trail of devastation.

Thousands of people have had their lives ripped apart and their homes destroyed.

Red Cross volunteers in every country in the hurricane’s path are helping those affected.

This includes those in the British Red Cross’ Overseas Branches Anguilla, the British Virgin Islands, Montserrat, and the Turks and Caicos Islands.

The British Red Cross, along with the International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) and other Red Cross Societies, is preparing for a massive, multi-country relief and recovery effort.
