UrtheRootz Mission:Rebuild Dominica

$7,905 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 60 people in 11 months
Created September 20, 2017
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 are overwhelmed by the support from the public to support our Urtherootz Mission Rebuild Dominica and take this opportuity to say a heartfelt Thank You to all those who have come forward to share their hearts, time and effort to assit our Brothers and Sisters of Dominica.

Opinions vary and emotions are high.
The questions arise regarding stability of proposed structures, sensible investments of materials/donations etc.
But do we leave our People exsposed for months awaiting ideal Shelters?
Yet,beneath the seeming differences of opinion[s] lies a pool of UNIversal truth,the essential beliefs shared by all confirm that our differences are superficial, and that our similarities run deep...a genuine need to asssit in the highest good for ALL involved.

We urge you to extend and lift your minds eye to all that is realistic and positive.
We appreciate all feedback, suggestions and comments. Please continue to share-it is how we grow as a people and learn from each other.


Dominica has been devastated.
We are driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent and sacred place to live and due to the dire urgency for basic shelter that is needed by so many at this time, we are inspired to take action.
We endeavor initally to construct a total of thirteen [13] modest sacred spaces of basic composition and remain hopeful that in the not too distant future,relevant Authourites/Government will provide 'ideal' Housing.

We are collecting and plannning to ensure a sucessful Mission and of top priority right now, is providing Shelter and Food.
We are currently sourcing our building material needs here on Island[Barbados] and have set up Collection/Donation points for such and additionally soliciting donations from local Hardware/Building Companies.

We will aim to purchase Cement on arrival in Dominica, however, these are all logistics to be confirmed as more information becomes available out of Dominica regarding availabilty of products, road accessibility, saftey etc.
The donations of chainsaws will help to cut some of those giant Gomier Tree Woods littering the Island and sturdy 15ft straight poles will be selected from cuts.These heavy sap and resin filled woods will be erected as main four[4] corner posts with cement with adequate deep foundation settings where possible.

We remain saddened at the horriffying communications,updates and footage that we have been seeing and receiving daily...but are optimistic that these temproary but modest and sacred spaces can address the imminent need for shelter that so many are faced with in the NOW.
We hear of dire situations coming out of Dominica-Women undergoing monthly cycles with newborn babies sheltered under trees by day and nite.. with no sacred place to commune as a family to offer basic shelter and privacy.
We intend to help allievate some of these burdens and help these families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to reagin their footing and build desirable and secure lives for themselves once again.

Sacred Geometric Shape Structures....Pyramids...Dome shape and Sandbag houses...
