On Saturday, 23 September 2017 and Sunday, 24 September 2017 at the Dominica High Commission in London, several members of the Dominica Overseas Nationals Association (DONA) and other volunteers assisted with the packing of items donated by the Dominicans in the United Kingdom. The High Commission was open on both days from 9.00am – 8.00pm, with the response from Dominicans and friends of Dominicans in the UK being overwhelming.
Her Excellency Ms Janet Charles, Acting High Commissioner for the Commonwealth of Dominica in London, expressed her thanks and appreciation to the UK community for their support in the calls for food, water, and other essential items to be shipped to Dominica and wanted Dominicans to know that we are standing in solidarity with them during this humanitarian crisis, and that our thoughts and prayers go to those who have lost property and loved ones.
The Dominica High Commission thanks all those who have been involved in the relief effort. Geest Line will be shipping items to Dominica from London on Tuesday, 26 September 2017.
