Hope and help for Dominica


After Hurricane Maria

My name is Denise Morancie and I am from the Beautiful Island of Dominica. I am a resident of Canada living in Winnipeg while my family including my son are still in the Caribbean.
On Monday September 18 2017 Hurricane Maria made landfall on my tiny island Dominica as a direct hit Category 5. Devastation, Decimated, dire situation are some of the only reports we are getting through ham operators..
My family lives in a small village called Wotten Waven which is up in the mountains once surrounded by waterfalls, pristine rivers, and rainforest. That is until Hurricane Maria!
My father is diabetic and short on insulin, and they are literally cut off from the world.
They do not currently require money as there is no where to spend it.
They desperately require all you can think of and what we so naturally take for granted... Tootpaste..water ...kids clothing diapers, tools to rebuild..generators as no power possibility for 6 months.
We would use the money raised to specifically buy all the immediate requirements and fill a container (hopefully many) to put on a ship .
If you had the opportunity to meet the people including the cutest kids you would probably agree they are the most gentle, and kind folks one could wish to meet.
We have a small team with a lot of heart helping with this fundraiser.
We have a modest goal and focusing on my specific village alone will be a huge undertaking as they really are suffering.
If you can help with funds or any donations on equipment or discounts on anything you think may help we will be postiing further requirements as we get more word what is actually required.
Dominica is often confused vvith Dominican Republic and they are both paradise .
I will post pics soon and keep everyone updated on the progress

Any amount will be so much appreciated


Before Hurricane Maria


Sincerely
Denise Morancie
