Regional Support to the Caribbean - CDEMA Emergency Assistance Fund.

BEMA International Members, Friends, and Associates:

Rarely do I promote or endorse for donations organizations providing assistance in times of disasters due to my understanding of ‘disaster capitalism’, institutionalized\culturally acceptable corruption, outrageous administration and operating expenses of some entities.

For the past 12-hours till now (5:30am ET) I have been monitoring the forecasts, temperature, and path of Tropical Storm Maria that may pick-up speed to reach the U.S. Coastlines (Gulf, Florida, or Eastern Seaboard).  Its’ immediate affect will be on the nations of the Caribbean, Cuba, Haiti, Virgin Islands (territories of U.S., and GB).

CDEMA has setup a disaster relief fund to provide assistance to all member nations of the Caribbean, Haiti, and hopefully assistance that will not be provided by our current administration to Cuba.

If fundraising opportunities are still being conducted please consider the island nations of the Caribbean to receive some portion by providing it directly to the CDEMA Emergency Assistance Fund.

To Mr. Ronald Jackson, Executive Director CDEMA, and all member nations and friends within CDEMA, within BEMA International “We Stand As One” and I and every member of the association stand with you.

In December 2017 CDEMA (Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency) has scheduled its bi-annual conference on disaster risk management.  Hopefully this event will take place following the 2017 hurricane season.  This was a time to further our association relationship with Emergency Management\Disaster professionals of CDEMA member nations, Haiti, and Cuba. 

Peace unto each of you.  God’s speed.
