The Department of Disaster Management & Emergencies has announced that a new system has been put in place to deal with relief items on the TCI.

The organisation said that it appreciated the goodwill of those trying to help the islands but advised that aid being brought in the region must go through the official channels.

Those hoping to contribute should supply:

"An official letter providing the list of items, quantities, values, port origin and proposed schedule time for arrival in the Providenciales Port. Secondly, an official letter providing the names of all persons, along with copies of his/her respective passport bio-data page. In addition, any other supporting information."

The DDME advised that it would process the documents and respond providing the necessary clearance.

Anyone in need of further information should contact ddme.tci@gmail.com.
