CAL, FEEL team up to send relief supplies to the Bahamas

Caribbean Airlines said it is partnering with charitable organisation the Foundation for the Enhancement and Enrichment of Life (FEEL) to support humanitarian relief efforts for The Bahamas in the wake of Hurricane Dorian.

The company said in a statement that starting from September 8, 2019, CAL will use its services to airlift supplies donated via the FEEL and Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management (ODPM) disaster relief programme, for distribution to families displaced and most affected by the hurricane.

Garvin Medera, Caribbean Airlines CEO said the company will do all it can to help.

“We are extremely saddened by the devastation in Grand Bahama and Abaco, and Caribbean Airlines is doing its part to ensure that the much needed aid is delivered to the Islands of The Bahamas."

"The Bahamian Government has identified trusted partners through which relief supplies will be distributed, and our partnership with FEEL allows the people of Trinidad & Tobago the opportunity to support The Bahamas through their donations," he said.
