EMERGENCY RELIEF FOR DOMINICA
On Monday September 18th catagory 5 Hurricane Maria struck the beautiful Nature island of Dominica with a devastating assault. As one of the poorer of the islands they do not have the backing of bigger foreign governments, so help from all our friends and those who know and love the island are most appreciated!
A group has been formed to get supplies to the island and to extract the neediest people from the island such as injured and at risk people. Most importantly, we have secured a significantly large order of an innovative EMERGENCY WATER PURIFYING SYSTEM crucial to the immediate lifesaving needs of remote communities.
It is our intent that additional supplies can be purchased and secured from close by islands so fuel and purchasing funds are also needed. We are working through the kind aid of International Rescue Group, the islands of Grenada and St Lucia, the local yachting communities, and the most generous Captain Mike on tug Flying Buzzard, and captain Dave Bean of Majestic Spirit catamaran. First departure with supplies has already been delivered and very well received!.
It is the intent that more supplies can be purchased and secured from close by islands so fuel and purchasing funds are needed. All donations are much appreciated.
If anyone can help with services as well!
If donating specifically for the Water filtration project please be sure to note. Please state WATER or FUEL when making your donations, ALL very much appreciated!
How to make filthy water drinkable
Too much of the world lacks access to clean drinking water. Engineer Michael Pritchard did something about it -- inventing the portable Lifesaver filter, which can make the most revolting water drinkable in seconds. An amazing demo from TEDGlobal 2009.
Of course there are many islands hurt so it will be especially difficult...tiny Dominica does not have the backing of bigger foreign governments so help from all of our friends and those who know and love the island are most appreciated!
