The facilities were built at the cost of EC$33 million with funding from the European Union, under the ’11th EDF Envelope State and Resilience Building Contract post-Hurricane Maria.’

The shelters feature wide spaces to serve as dormitories, storage rooms, kitchens, washrooms, medical centres, laundry facilities, administrative offices and alternate water and power supplies.
