The Caribbean Island of Dominica has been severely hit by hurricane Maria on Monday 18th Spetember 2017. The people of Dominica have been left hungry, without shelter and are in need of as much assisstance as we can provide. Sacha, Raul, Sari and Oli are working together to raise funds in order to ship much needed aid direct to the Office of Disaster Management in Dominica who are in charge of coordinating the relief effort on the ground in Dominica as quickly as we can.
The funds raised here will go towards buying much needed supplies including tarpaulin, rope, betteries, water purification tablets, non-perishable food items, baby products, sanitary products, matches first aid kits, medication and more. I (Sacha Burnett-Biscombe) will be in charge of withdrawing the funds and I will keep you updated on what we are buying with your generous donations.
They are in desperate need of help and assistance, they will be without power for 2-3 months, particularly in the more rural areas on Dominica and the economy of the island will take years to recover. Sacha, Raul, Sari and Oli are working together in London and Cornwall to collect donations of these items as well which we will add to the shipments. Thank you all so much for your concern and support.
