    Distribution of the donated items shipped free of charge to Dominica will be co-ordinated by the Office of Disaster of Management.

Note: It has been asked that people do not donate any clothing at this time but you can see a list of much needed supplies below.

Dominica – the first island hit by the full category-five force of Hurricane Maria – is “in a daze”, officials have said, cut off from its Caribbean neighbours in the wake of a storm that destroyed properties, silenced communications and cut power and running water. Ever part of Dominica has been effected & the majority of people have now been made homeless.
