Since 2016, Bureau Rampenbestrijding Aruba (BRA) has been implementing a REHAB Plan called “The Thirsty, The Hungry, and The Tired” to reinforce the team of First Responders during a catastrophe.
The goal of the plan is to improve Aruba’s response capacity, so the island recovers quicker after a catastrophe. In a conversation between BRA and Aruba Hotel & Tourism Association (AHATA), it was discovered that BRA would benefit from having a golf cart at their disposal to manage the crisis during a disaster. With a golf cart BRA can transport the response team and various relief items. AHATA went in search of a golf cart within its membership base, and Divi Dutch Village/ Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort offered to restore and donate one of their golf carts to BRA.
With this gift, the First Responders will be well taken care of during a crisis and can effectively do their work. Divi and AHATA coordinated the official delivery of the refurbished golf cart to the Director of BRA, Mr. Rino Hermans. A big thank you to Divi Dutch/Divi Village for their valuable gesture.
