DNO has spoken to Calvin Alkins, Barbadian business and friend of Dominica, who has organized a charter to ship supplies to Dominica. The boat will carry donations from various Barbadian businesses as well as providing the opportunity for residents of Barbados to ship personal packages to friends and loved ones in Dominica free of charge.

Mr Alkins, in affiliation with Kastrel Liner Agency and his own company , Customs Services, have secured the vessel Admiral Bay II which will sail from the Bridgetown Port at 4:30 pm on Tuesday September 26 and arrive at some time on Wednesday September 27.

Mr Alkins advises those who wish to send packages to locate the intended recipient before doing so, as the staff cannot guarantee that they will make contact once the ship has berthed.

Packages may be dropped off  on Saturday September 23, Sunday September 24, and Monday September 25 between the hours of  9 AM -7:30 PM.

Address of drop-off is :

#19 Gas Alley

Cane Garden

St. Thomas

Barbados

 

Any questions may be directed to  Mr Alkins at : 1-246-231-6261 or email address: calkins@kastrel.com (email is preferable).

 

He also stated that there will be an additional charter some time in the near future. Details will be forthcoming.
