ALBA-TCP expresses solidarity with countries affected by Hurricane Beryl

The regional bloc expressed its willingness to provide assistance to families affected by the passage of Hurricane Beryl

The Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-People's Trade Treaty (ALBA-TCP) expressed its solidarity with the Caribbean countries that have been affected by the passage of the Hurricane Beryl.

Through a release, the regional bloc indicated that it joins the efforts of all the Governments of the Caribbean countries to address and repair the damage caused by Beryl, “which increased its strength, going to category 4 in a matter of hours, leaving destruction and desolation.”

“The unexpected evolution of Hurricane Beryl is an example of the severe effects of the climate crisis and the need to work together to mitigate its consequences and provide a rapid response to the affected towns,” he stated in the text.

Given this situation that affects nations in the region, members and non-members of the Alliance, the bloc reiterated the importance of the formation of the ALBA-TCP Agency for Risk Prevention and Management, an instruction given by the heads of State and of Government at the summit last April.

ALBA-TCP regretted the human and material losses left by Beryl and ratified its willingness to assist the affected families.

Now Beryl is heading to the coast of Mexico, after leaving at least seven people dead and considerable damage on Wednesday as it passed through Jamaica.
