Hurricane Maria relief efforts – comprehensive list, contact information

0 71

As you all know Hurricane Maria has left the nation of Dominica completely crippled, cutting off electricity, telecommunication and water supplies across the island. The destruction is unparalleled. Although assessments are still being made and communication is slowly being restored it has become clear that the country is in desperate need of  basic supplies.

Generously, several initiatives have sprung up in the wake of this disaster to attempt to alleviate any suffering for residents of the island. However, at DNO we are completely aware that there is a lot of information floating around the internet and we therefore have compiled a list of individuals and organizations leading such efforts, who have each been contacted and the particulars verified by DNO. Please note that this is an ongoing list so it will be updated if necessary. Additionally, we have included a  general list of  some of the most immediately needed items. Please support these efforts. The people of Dominica have a long, hard road ahead.
