The aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti on August 14, 2021

Full statement from the Office of the Prime Minister 

In keeping with the government’s commitment to taking swift and robust action in response to the recent devastating earthquake in our sister CARICOM state of the Republic of Haiti, and following on the heels of a direct telephone conversation last Saturday between His Excellency President Irfaan Ali and the newly appointed Haitian Prime Minister the Honorable Dr. Ariel Henry, the Office of the Prime Minister today established a humanitarian account with Republic Bank (Guyana) Limited, in the name of the Civil Defence Commission.

The OPM will be working closely with our civil society, private sector and other partners to quickly raise funds for a coordinated, substantial relief response for the affected people of Haiti.

Guyana’s resolve to stand in solidarity in good and bad times with our CARICOM brothers and sisters across the region remains steadfast. As we have done in the past, we will combine energies and resources to meet this latest humanitarian challenge to bring comfort and relief to our Hatian brothers and sisters as quickly as possible.
We ask that Guyanese in the diaspora join our efforts to provide substantial relief through our collective response.
