The Executive Committee, Managing Partners and staff at Henley & Partners wish to express solidarity and deepest sympathy with those suffering on the Caribbean island of Dominica in the wake of the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria.
We have witnessed with shock and dismay the destructive and distressing effect of these natural disasters on the Caribbean region over the past few weeks, and now in Dominica, and pledge our continued and heartfelt support to those who have lost their homes, their livelihoods and their loved ones. We are actively working with our colleagues and partners in the region to direct funds and support to those who most need it, and to raise capital for reconstruction.
Henley & Partners has a long-standing and deep commitment to the people of the Eastern Caribbean and engages actively to provide opportunities for the development and empowerment of young people. Together with the Halo Foundation in Antigua, we recently sent three deserving students from Antigua and Barbuda to take up undergraduate scholarships at Saint Mary's University in Nova Scotia, Canada. The students were the recipients of the Henley & Partners Hero Scholarship, a program which we intend to expand further in the region.
We will continue to engage in such initiatives and seek innovative and meaningful ways to support the communities of the Eastern Caribbean, and to assist with disaster relief across those islands affected by the hurricanes.
