The Barbadian public is being urged to give generously to aid the hurricane relief effort in the Bahamas in a national telethon to be held on Sunday.

Minister of Information, Broadcasting and Public Affairs Senator Lucille Moe said at a news briefing this afternoon that every media house in the country has come onboard and will be broadcasting or streaming the event Rise Again Bahamas.

Barbados’ Ambassador to Caricom, David Commissiong, added his own appeal.

Chairman of the Barbados Christian Council Major Darrelle Wilkinson, announced that churches will dedicate this weekend to pray for the people of the  Bahamas.
