A relief fund has been established to support recovery of the British Virgin Islands following devastation brought by Hurricane Irma.
The fund has been set up by the BVI Tourist Board in London on behalf of the islands’ government.
Widespread damage has been reported across the BVI’s with at least five people killed as the strongest storm in a decade flattened homes and ripped down trees.
Tourism director Sharon Flax-Brutus said: “We want to thank everyone for the outpouring of support for the BVI community.
“The people of the British Virgin Islands are resilient and we are confident we will be able to rebuild.”
The Board’s Ginny Hawksley will be passing on updates from the territory to the trade when they become available.
