“The annual Carnival celebration is one which takes prominence on Cable & Wireless (Flow) Dominica’s Corporate Social Responsibility agenda. We see it as preserving the unique cultural heritage of Dominica and we are proud to celebrate with our customers, nationals and visitors to our beautiful nature island alike,” said Baptiste
