GBTI Hurricane Fund musters close to $2M for Bahamas Relief

The Guyana Bank for Trade and Industry Limited has generated almost Two Million Dollars through the GBTI Hurricane Relief Fund – Bahamas which was initiated shortly after Hurricane Dorian ravaged sections of the Bahamas early in September.

The Bank immediately committed a substantial three million dollars and encouraged its customers, staff and members of the public to join the relief efforts by donating to the Fund.


The FUND was closed on October 1 and the funds raised were today handed over to the Civil Defence Commission which is coordinating the national support efforts here.

Meanwhile GBTI donated its three million dollars directly to the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) of the Bahamas to also aid their relief efforts.

GBTI expresses its gratitude to all those who contributed to the Fund and expresses hope and best wishes to the Government and People of The Bahamas for a speedy return to normalcy.
