The East Caribbean Conference of the Seventh Day Adventists is to present a monetary contribution amounting to BBD$50,000 (EC$67,500) to Dominica as part of relief efforts in the wake of Tropical Storm Erika.

The East Caribbean Conference of Seventh Day Adventists serves churches in the islands of Barbados and Dominica.

“In the aftermath of the passage of the storm, the President Danforth Francis, along with his administration, met and they have committed themselves to make a monetary contribution to Dominica, and a letter was since forwarded to you Prime Minister with a commitment of an initial financial contribution of 50,000 Bajan dollars,” Ministerial President of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, Pastor Felix Jack, said.

He continued, “Last weekend and this weekend the churches are taking special offering that will have met that and also we are in the business of providing relief throughout the length and breadth of the islands of the places that have been affected.”

He noted that the Conference has activated the Adventist Disaster and Relief Agency (ADRA) under the Chairmanship of Priscilla Prevost and initial relief will include providing water, food and psychological first aid to those affected.

The East Caribbean Conference of Seventh Day Adventists said its mission is to reach every person in its territory with the gospel of Jesus Christ and to participate in the Global Mission Program of the Seventh Day Adventist Church.

    Yes indeed the SEVENTH DAY WORLD SERVICE Program during Hurricane David gave over 200 houses all over the ISLAND as well as the major Marantha square relocation of houses in Pichelin after the houses were damaged by a landslide during the OJ Administration .
    There was a proposal to rebuild and mange Princess Margaret hospital as well which was not followed up by incoming administration ,

    Other churches take note. The Call to churches is to help the poor and needy. This is what Jesus commanded you to do. Not buy new vehicles for the pastor or support lavish lifestyle.. collected money in the church should be saved for times like these.
