Hurricane Relief for Home Economics

Hurricanes IRMA and MARIE have devastated many parts of the Caribbean where there are few resources to devote to recovery of Home Economics programs. Our Caribbean Association of Home Economists (CAHE) colleagues and FCS/Home Economics programs on affected islands need our help in recovering and maintaining their life preparation Home Economics programs. Requests for assistance are already coming in to CAHE and DAP.

For instance, Barbuda is uninhabitable for the foreseeable future so Antigua has all students from schools in Barbuda in their programs with no additional resources plus Antigua had damage themselves from MARIE.
