    Dear Global Chamber Member,

    In recent weeks, Hurricane Matthew and Nicole swept through the Caribbean and Florida, leaving devastation in their path. Haiti’s current death toll currently stands at over 1300 with a total of 1384 deaths caused by the hurricane. While Hurricane Nicole hasn’t caused any reported deaths, the destruction to property and the communities left by both hurricanes stands between $4 to $6 Billion USD.

    Global Chamber is represented in the Caribbean by Executive Director Dr. Ty Richardson, based in Trinidad and Tobago, and in South Florida by Emi Hanado, based in Miami, Florida. Both are currently spending time with Caribbean and South Florida communities, evaluating the damage, determining how to support and raising capital to contribute to the recovery and rebuild efforts.
