In collaboration with the Over the Bank Community Council, the Netherlands Red Cross, through its St. Maarten branch, is organizing an information session about our current recovery programmes in Over the Bank. Currently, the Red Cross has three programmes aimed at helping families who were impacted by Hurricane Irma. The Red Cross has launched the second phase of the Supermarket Voucher Programme through which families in need receive Red Cross food vouchers allowing them to purchase groceries in participating supermarkets. In addition, the Home Repair Programme has completed its first assessments, with technical officers providing expertise and the Red Cross providing materials to support families in the repair of their homes. Finally, the School Meal Programme, which provides breakfasts and hot lunches to thousands of students each day, has been extended until the end of the school year.
