The staff and executive of the National Youth Council (NYC) of Dominica would like to express our great relief and profound joy at the recovery of Miss Shanice Jemmott from her abductor.
Special thanks to the Dominica Police Force and all those who assisted in the search for her, persons who assisted in raising awareness and also to the persons who prayed for and with her family and supported their efforts.
To the parents and all the other members of her home circle and the extended family, we will continue to keep you all in our prayers and pledge our continued support to your family.
Let us all be empathetic at this time and remember that Shanice’s healing and recovery has only now begun.
We encourage all parents to be vigilant and aware of their children’s activities and whereabouts and most importantly to foster good dialogue with them, keeping in mind the golden rule ‘Do unto others what you would have them do unto to you’.
We do also ask the general public to respect the rights of Shanice and her family through this trying period. Let us all continue to work together as we bring comfort and help to restore some peace in the lives of her family, friends, schoolmates and community.
