Q&A


By Ilona Kauremszky


Q: We had our honeymoon over 10 years ago in the Caribbean and loved every minute of it. We haven't been back since but I am really saddened to see the hurricane devestation and wonder if I can make a donation to a relief fund somewhere. Do you have any ideas?

A: One of the most powerful hurricanes to hit the Caribbean in the last 10 years, Hurricane Ivan ripped and ravaged the region and was heavily felt in Grenada where rain and winds of 220 km per hour hit the tri-island nation of 102,000 residents.

I contacted the Consulate General of Grenada for a relief update. Their Toronto office has created The Grenada Hurricane Ivan Relief Organization to assist the people of Grenada.

Donations can be made at the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC), 460 University Avenue, Toronto, Account #2608731 and Transit #04702. Cheques or money orders should be made payable to the Consulate General of Grenada. Contributions can be made at any branch of the CIBC.

For more information on relief efforts, contact the Consulate General of Grenada at 416-595-1343 or visit them on the web at www.grenadaconsulate.com.
