PwC Bermuda, together with its Caribbean counterparts, has collectively donated $50,000 to disaster relief and recovery efforts in Haiti after last month’s 7.2-magnitude earthquake.

The professional services firm said that the money was raised by the partners and employees of PwC firms in Bermuda, the Bahamas, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, East Caribbean (Barbados and St Lucia), Guyana, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago.

PwC said that a cash donation of $50,000 has been made to the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency, an inter-governmental agency in the Caribbean Community.

Frazer Lindsay, CEO of PricewaterhouseCoopers Caribbean Region Ltd, said: “PwC in the Caribbean stands with the people of Haiti who continue to suffer in the aftermath of this devastating earthquake, which took the lives of more than 2,000 people and destroyed over 50,000 homes. We are pleased to make this donation to CDEMA to help with reconstruction and ongoing humanitarian aid efforts.”

Scott Watson-Brown, PwC Bermuda corporate responsibility leader, said: “Our hearts go out to the tens of thousands of Haitians affected by the tragedy. Disaster response and relief is a vital part of our ESG programme at PwC and we are proud of our people across the Caribbean for responding so quickly and generously to this fundraiser.”
