St Vincent and the Grenadines will provide space within some Secondary Schools on the island for children from the BVI.
Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves made this announcement on Saturday while addressing a hurricane relief effort by the Good Heart Foundation at Heritage Square.
“We will have to provide if the request is made, and I believe it will come, for some space at our schools particularly for those with CXC’s and CAPE”.
Gonsalves said it was done here when Hurricane Ivan had devasted Grenada in 2005, so the process is nothing new.
The Prime Minister also noted that it might be done as well for some persons who are hospitalised and in need of particular attention.
Technical personnel will also be sent to the BVI in relation to Electricity, Water, and general restoration. Gonsalves also stated that staff would be forwarded to address individuals with Psycho Social Issues.
