USPG has sent emergency grants to Anglican dioceses in West Indies where Hurricanes Irma and Maria caused devastation. 

In particular, we have been in regular contact with two of the most severely affected dioceses, namely the Diocese of North Eastern Caribbean and Aruba, and the Diocese of The Bahamas and The Turks and Caicos Islands.

Alongside emergency grants from our Rapid Response Fund, we continue to offer our prayers and solidarity.
