    If you set up a charity, then you can benefit whomever you want. If women have set up a charity for other women – then good for them! I can’t believe all these comments saying “what about the men?”.
    Personally, I have just gone through my wardrobe, and removed two huge bags of good clothing and bedding, and I am very pleased to find out where I can donate it.
    I am pleased to see action and not just words. If there is need of a charity for men, then perhaps one of the men can start one?

    Stop being daft people. Women and babies have extra needs. Men are lucky that they don’t have to buy sanitary napkins every month. You think this is a burden that women enjoy? And babies cannot clean up after themselves, thus the need for wipes and diapers. Men can just go in the bush and be fine.

    Where is the PM’s wife with her care packages when we really want them? Last election season she was distributing those care packages for women. Just where is she now I wonder

    Mr. Joe in this time of need there is NO room for negativity.

    The Dominica National Council of Women (DNCW) concentrates on issues conerning WOMEN. That is their job as members of this council. So if they see that women and children need specific supplies, they must address this issue.

    The national Council for men ( if there is one) can also give a call for assisstance with relation to specific male issues IF they see it necessary.

    Either way BOTH males and females on the islabnd who are in need are being given priority. So you need to relax and join the struggle to help ALL in need.
