Participants were from Jamaica, Dominica, St. Lucia, Trinidad and host country Grenada. There were also 2 representatives from Food For the Poor.
Caritas Grenada Inc Diocesan Coordinator, Francis Darius stated that the main aim of the exercise is to have capable, trained responders in all our communities so that in the event of a disaster we can identify any potential gaps in our disaster plans. SIMEX 2024 was facilitated by a team from CRS (Catholic Relief Services) EMPOWER project from the USA, Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador and Haiti. There were two co-facilitators from Grenada and Jamaica.
