UrtheRootz Mission:Rebuild Dominica

This Mission RD is designed to aid in disaster relief efforts for our Brothers and Sisters in Dominica due to Hurricane Maria causing unprecedented damage on the Nature Isle on September 18th, 2017.
Families in the affected Villages are now facing the task of rebuilding.

UrtheRootz is committed to offering all the assistance we can.There are enough of us LiteHearts,that together, our contribution[s] can make a significant difference.
OurTeam's priority will be erecting Shelters and 
we are expanding and reassembling our UrtheRootz Team for this Mission.

One of our first steps is to provide immediate relief to Family,Friends and their most affected and immediate Circles.
Our main form of assistance once on the ground will be to provide basic shelter and home structures. Also distributing aid to meet the basic needs of people within the vicinity of our Base to ensure peace.

We await more word from our Dominican Contacts,yet we have heard,as can be exspected,Bridges have been destroyed and many Roads are still submerged and generally unpassable. The lack of Communication and Transportation have isolated families from food, necessities and shelter. 
Many areas are still completely cut off by high waters and damaged roads. Massive help is required to get to devastated areas and reach those in need.

We extend our hand in support with the local aid groups and NGO’s currently helping the affected areas through the diaspora.
We are contributing Time,Nrg , Resources,Finances,Food items etc.
We ask you to join us in this effort, in any way you can.
We feel we can lift the burdens of our Brothers and Sisters in this time of need.
Your gift of support and contribution to the Mission to assist in Dominica enables us to prepare, provide and fulfill that urge to assist that comes from our Hearts.

Our list is aligned with that issued by the Hon. R.Skerritt. We need a range of Shelter Relief and Food items.

We have now established this gofundme method to receive payment contributions in support of this recovery and reconstruction effort for Dominica.
You can follow the link here if your Heart feels to assist in that way.


Remember that this is our time to make a difference with action.
We all Love, and always hear of Love for Dominica and Her People.But right now we feel that words are inadequate,We are spurred to action.
We send Bliss n Blessings onto all hearts joined.
We prepare to share the same to our Brothers and Sisters 0f Waitikubuli.

Please note that the Account name reflects as Erika Del Cid. This is due to gofundme not being compatible for payments within our local region, thereby requiring us to link payments to an International [US]Account of one of our Teammembers.

We will soon make possible, updated information regarding the location[s] of Bases for donations/supplies to be received and as much information that becomes available regarding our eager departure and passage.
Please be guided to subscribe to the updates at the bottom of the link on the gofundme home page. 

In an effort to ease the minds of all contributing, we endeavor to make transparent, all RebuildDomMission Activities and keep our FB Reports arriving, keeping you up to date with our progress and any obstacles we may face on the way to achieving Our Goals.
All we accumalate will be going to the people of Dominica . An up todate outline of funding and distribution will be made available to the general public as we progress.

It's just as important to get the word out about #missionrebuilddominica so you can share this with your family, friends, coworkers. You can also help spread the word about this campaign by sharing our Facebook Page UrtheRootz Mission: Rebuild Dominica
