Solidarity message to our
Caribbean brothers and sisters

On behalf of the churches and people of the Caribbean Conference of Churches we express our concern to the people and churches of Bahamas, Cayman Islands Cuba, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Haiti, Jamaica, Puerto Rico St Vincent and Tobago in the face of your suffering as a result of the impact in your countries of Hurricane Ivan and Tropical storm Jeanne.

While this hurricane season has underscored the extreme vulnerability of so many of our countries to natural disasters, it has also been an opportunity to strengthen and re-assert our communal and regional links to each other.

We assure you of the prayerful and material support of our pan-Caribbean ecumenical community in your time of loss, re-grouping and re-building. Our prayers especially are with those who have lost their homes and loved ones

To date we have been in touch with National Christian Councils in Grenada , in Jamaica , in Cuba and in Haiti to offer Christian solidarity and to support the needs identified by the councils for assistance to the church and wider communities. We know of your concern for each other and will keep you informed of the work undertaken by the various councils and related church groups. Also, many of the CCC's international partners stand ready to support rehabilitation and other efforts through a process of ongoing consultation and collaboration.

We pray for God's blessings on us all in the days ahead.
