On Monday, November 14th, 2011, the Dominica Association of People living with Disabilities (DAPD) received a donation of one computer from First Domestic Insurance Co. Ltd.
Earlier this year in July and September, the Office of the Association on Canal Lane in Goodwill was burglarized and computers, flash drives, software, a printer and other office equipment were stolen.
They were donated as part of a project funded by the Government of Japan through the JICA Agency in 2008. According to the grant agreement, the association is responsible for replacing any of the items lost, stolen or damaged within five years of the agreement.
In receiving the computer, Mrs. Nathalie Murphy, Director of DAPD expressed heartfelt gratitude to Mr. Robert Tonge, Chief Executive Officer of First Domestic Insurance for the company’s kind donation. FDIC is the first corporate entity to come on board to donate equipment after the burglaries.
Mr. Robert Tonge was pleased to donate the computer and encourages the rest of the corporate community to join and contribute any required equipment to DAPD after these unfortunate series of burglaries.
