NRS International provides continued support for the affected communities in the Caribbean islands24 Oct 2017
In the space of just a few short days in September, many islands of the Caribbean were hit by Irma and Maria, two of the most destructive hurricanes in recent years. In the British Virgin Islands and in Puerto Rico, the storms wiped out much of the infrastructure, electricity, and communications lines and barely left a house standing.
At NRS International, we are activating our holistic ‘Rapid Response Strategy’ approach so that aid agencies and local authorities get the required supplies of emergency response materials as quickly as possible.
Collaborating with local NGOs on the ground
In response to the needs identified by our local partners on the ground, our colleague Veronica Rodriguez, Business Development & Sales Executive for USA and Latin America, is currently in Puerto Rico to assess the situation and to better understand how we can efficiently respond to the crisis. We are also actively collaborating with the major supplier of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and various aid organizations that are committed to relief, recovery and rebuilding efforts on the hurricane-hit islands.
Continued support for the most vulnerable
We continue to work 24/7 and we are responding to various requests for family tents, blankets, tarpaulins and mosquito nets, which are direly needed by the residents living in the face of this unimaginable destruction.
So far, we have provided additional supplies of tarpaulins and jerry cans for replenishment in our client’s Panama warehouse. We continue to monitor the situation and are ready to provide additional relief supplies and temporary shelters as orders come in from clients worldwide.
