    I would like to send a small amount but doing wire transfers is cost prohibitive. It would be nice if paypal or another option was available for smaller amounts. I believe paypal is open to waiving transaction fees for donation operations such as this.

    Also, the petty arguing does not have a place here.

    I would have sent some bitcoins, but doing a bank transfer is far to expensive and time consuming. (However serious the cause, if one wanted to do a bank transfer to help every humanitarian cause, he simply wouldn’t have enough time in the day.)

    Consider taking Bitcoin donations; I’m sure the Bitcoin community will provide a good amount of support.

    GOV should suspend all import/export taxes for a season…

    that’s nice. In my opinion the government should/would not consider being stranded in a resort an emergency situation versus people that have no home or place to sleep or lost everything or cannot get to their jobs or children that cannot attend school.

    Can you update us Dominicans overseas and friends of Dominica who are willing to help on the types and levels of assistance that Dominica needs right now? There are reports surfacing now of various countries and organisations that have pledged and delivered monetary assistance, relief supplies, skilled services and the like, even while a Needs Assessment is being undertaken. I could not help but notice reports relating to local food stocks and an offer from the supermarket ACS Shillingford to contribute to relief efforts as well as today’s meeting with local food suppliers. An update on needs that are NOT being met will help us to help you in the best possible way.

    Our hearts are with the beautiful people of Dominica as they struggle with aftermath of the storm. We especially think of the Ambo family of Salsibury. Much distant Love we send to you from your friends in the U.S. Laura and Phil Wilson

      You are blaming the government of Dominica because a neighboring nation does not care and is not helping? when was the last time the US government did anything significant for Dominica? Trinidad, St Lucia and Venezuela were the first foreign nations on the scene are you saying we should not work cooperatively with our neighbors because another country wants to be the hero in our stead?

You need them , you call and they will answer. But your ……. PM is too proud to pick up the phone and ask , because of his affiliations with rogue head of states .

    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 (from the P.M. to the seemingly insignificant beggars on the streets) 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 true and lasting 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.

    Again I repeat:

    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…

    • UDOHREADYET

      Its a government fund. who else do you expect to over see it? don’t you think its in the best interest of the government to get the country running? why are you so concerned about funds?

    :cry: As much as it hurts me to see the state of my country. I fighting with myself cause not much of the donated money will get to go to those who were affected by the storm. How much will the government use to pay themselves. It’s all cash. No trace. Why doesn’t skerro declare it a national disaster..special disaster area? What does that mean? Hunger will open the minds of the ppl who voted for skerro. Stop donating cash donate food and clothes. He walked through bathestate will a smile on his face. Wtf. All the work the Chinese did wash away cause no real money was put into the construction. All tarish with an inch of tar.

      the but in your sentence is a sign of your BS! Dominicans have a habit (passive aggressive) of blaiming other people for their negative actions. If you are going to contribute… contribute! Dont say you would help but you dont know who’s going to ge tthe help so you’re not helping… that is complete nonsense, jsut say you dont want to help because you are selfish and narrow minded.

    I would like to send some money for the reconstruction of Dominica, but can I even trust these guys? I would like to do so through a transparent agency that will ensure that every penny is spent for DOMINICA and not some politicians.

      Send it to Team Dominica, c/o Thomson Fontaine. Rest assured it will be well spent.

      i understand your concern but you must differentiate between what is in your head versus reality. when was the last time any member of government stole money from you for their own use that you can go into a court of law and prove? Please do not use other people as your excuse for not giving… your concern is a healthy one but should not be a reason to turn your back while relying on excuses in your head.

        I don;t think you understand any concerns where cash money is concerned . I wouldn;t send my cash for anyone that I don’t know personally to distribute, because once it land in thier oickets thats where it will stay. I’d rather pack barrels and send them to my people wher ethey can distribute them to the entended recipients and not the likes of you
