Support for Dominica
Dominica continues to need support, and you can help.
On September 18th, Dominica was devastated by Hurricane Maria, which hit the island nation as a Category 5 storm. Maria destroyed most of Dominica’s buildings, and stripped the Nature Island of its lush rainforests. Two weeks later, the situation on the ground remains difficult. Some parts of Dominica remain uncommunicated, and most of the island is without electricity and running water. The government of Dominica is working around the clock to secure food for its citizens, and to restore basic infrastructure. You can help relief efforts by donating to: 1.) the official donation account of the Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica; or 2.) one of several crowdfunding campaigns on gofundme.com such as the one established by the Dominica American Relief and Development Association, Inc. (DARDA.org)
Let’s all pull together to help our regional neighbours in their time of need.
