(Kingston, Jamaica) - Please note the following points regarding the relief efforts in TCI

The Government has now divided Providenciales into three zones for relief purposes .... Blue Hills, 5 Cays, and The Pike.  The Salvation Army has been assigned the 5 Cays zone which is the largest zone.

Government is providing the Army with a Community Center in the 5 Cays zone to serve as a distribution center.  They are also assigning 10 volunteers to the Army and will be directing food and other supplies to the Army for distribution in the 5 Cays zone.

The distribution center will begin operating on Friday.

Government has requested the Salvation Army to visit the shelters and encourage persons that are able to return to their homes or find accommodations with family and friends.  The goal is to clear the schools that are being used as shelters so that school can resume .... hopefully next week.

A donor is making arrangements with his connections in Canada for a shipment of mattresses, tarpaulins, clothing, school supplies, etc to distribute in TCI.

The reports we have received thus far indicate that South Caicos is even more devastated than Providenciales. The fact that the government has sent 3000 tarpaulins to Grand Turk is an indication of the challenges there.
