    May he rest in perfect peace. My father Eddison Kelchure was part of DONA with him and his wife, he was always a calm man. He did a lot for Dominica

    Most people travel overseas seeking a better life only for themselves and their immediate families. A few go the extra mile and, making sacrifices, look back from whence they came to give a helping hand through the creation of overseas organizations and associations. Mr Brand seemed to fall into the latter bracket. May he rest in peace and his work live on.
