Friday 4th May 2018

2nd May 2018 - The National Office of Disaster Services (NODS) begins distributing vouchers to Barbudan residents who have been living outside of the shelters in Antigua and also in Barbuda.

This is a 50 thousand US dollar initiative of the Barbados-based Caribbean Disaster Emergency Response Agency (CDEMA) and Caricom, called the Caricom/CDEMA Legacy Project.

As part of the programme, 250 families will benefit and will be able to purchase items from three supermarkets - two in Antigua and one in Barbuda.

Individuals are being urged to contact NODS at 462-4206 to find out whether their names are on the list of beneficiaries before visiting the office.
