Govt. sets aside $50,000 for Japan relief
Bermuda is to match donations of up to $50,000 given to the Red Cross in aid of Japan.
Premier Paula Cox said the donation will be used to help Japan recover following the earthquake and tsunami that hit the Asian nation last week.
“No-one in Bermuda can be unmoved by the tragic events that have taken place in Japan,” she said.
“We have seen the media reports with pictures showing a landscape of destruction; a distraught nation.
“The islands of Japan are a valued partner of Bermuda but more important, the people of Japan are a part of the human family. We are prepared to support them in ways that we can.”
