Dominica Hurricane Maria Relief

Our thoughts and prayers are with #Dominica. 

Unfortunately, our beloved Nature Island was in the direct path of Category 5 #HurricaneMaria and, so far, has sustained widespread devastation. #DARDA is asking members of the Diaspora to assist in the relief efforts by contributing via this gofundme page.  All proceeds will benefit the recovery, relief and rebuilding efforts in Dominica.

Thank you.

In 1979, Dominica was left devastated by Hurricane David which caused widespread destruction including damage to buildings and infrastructure and the loss of numerous lives. The Dominica-American Relief & Development Association (DARDA) was organized as a way for Dominicans living in and around the New York area to help raise funds and provide aid to their homeland as the island attempted to recover and rebuild in the aftermath of Hurricane David.

It is for this reason, and the very nature of our organization's founding, that DARDA has pledged our support towards Hurricane Maria relief efforts in Dominica, similar to our efforts in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Erika in 2015.
