ST KITTS – Qatar supports hurricane recovery efforts

(CNS) – St Kitts and Nevis’ post-hurricane recovery efforts were boosted on Monday when the Government of the State of Qatar made a financial contribution to the Government of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis.

The financial donation of $300,000 was presented by Non-Resident Ambassador of the State of Qatar to St. Kitts and Nevis, Khamis Al-Sahouti during a courtesy call with Prime Minister, Dr. Timothy Harris at Government Headquarters.

In September of 2017, St. Kitts and Nevis were significantly impacted by the passing of two dangerous category 5 hurricanes – Irma and Maria.

As a result of the two disasters, the twin-island Federation suffered significant damages to key public infrastructure, including schools, police stations, the Basseterre Fire Department, the Dieppe Bay and Old Road Fisheries Complexes, the agricultural sector and the island main roads, totalling over $150 million.
