    DNO in addition to saying the government has approved that gofundme site, can you please indicate who is behind that site.

    Our group is going to do a fund raising drive and I am also going to be involved in a wider fundraising initiative, and some of the things that I keep hearing from some of the people I speak to are the following:

    (1) DLP supporters will be the primary beneficiaries of the money.
    (2) I don’t know where the money is going?
    (3) During Hurricane David a lot of well to do people stole some of the more valuable items and the poor people who needed stuff never got anything.

    Whether these are facts or perceptions, that is their reality and we need to overcome that and make prospective donors feel comfortable that their hard earned money will be put to good use.

      Send the money to Government. If the money helps build a road every one will benifit, blue red green. If you are sending your own money your political concerns is your business. However when collecting money from other people through fundraising that money should go directly to Government. We pay taxes in Dominica and all of it goes to the government.

      Hye hye, we Dominicans love America, and America knows that. It’s one man who doesn’t love America because he hates transparency. If you spend America money on you, your family and friends and neglect the masses; America will come for you and will put you in a house that is much bigger than yours. But when China gives you money, they are just happy that you are willing to take Thousands of their citizens to live in your country. China don’t know what is transparence; and they don’t care. China don’t have clean nothing. No clean drinking water, no clean air to breathe. So yes, I see why the dictator would be quite hesitant to let America in. And by the way; America could come in if the opposition was stronger than it is right now. The new name for communist is “Democracy.”

    Need I say it again?

    2 Chronicles 7:14 New International Version (NIV)

    If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

    We all need to catch a hold of that scripture and allow it to become a reality in our lives. Then and only then will we see change and a healing of our once beautiful nation. No amount of money or aid can heal DA. This is spiritual warfare and some things can only go by prayer and fast. Funding is just a temporary band-aid. The strong arms of the Lord is permanent.

      This message is for the born again Christians. The un-regenerated people cannot grasp that concept. Children of God must go back to the old land mark. When the world has influence over the true church, and the TC wants to be part of the world; this is a recipe for chaos. “You sow to the wind; you reap the whirl-wind.” Signs of the end time cannot be altered by pray. These things are inevitable. All the saints are command to do in such a time as these; is watch and pray. Pray for loved ones, friends and family to come into the “ark” before all mountains are covered with His wrath. But that portion concerning “humbling yourselves” is crucial. But these things need be, so the elect will remember what the good Lord said would come to pass in the last days. Man’s heart (sad to say) will be hardened. Though signs be wrought in heaven and on earth; man will not be persuaded to find shelter in the Lord. Instead, they are looking to politicians, liars, thieves. This is the beginning of…
