On Saturday June 30th, the National Bank of Dominica held an open house event at the Goodwill Parish Hall targeting homeowners and potential homeowners.
The UNDP with the support of the ChinaAid and Engineers without Borders (EWB), contributed to this event by exhibiting our model resilient roof- its designs and functionality and the distributing of the Building Guidelines. It was well attended by the general public and included booths from various hardware stores.
The event closed with a presentation from the EWB further explaining the guidelines.

Calibishie Health Centre – DominicaJune 25, 2018
Calibishie is a village in northeastern Dominica in the St. Andrew Parish with a population of 1,017. The Calibishie Health Centre serves the Calibishie, Bense and Hampstead villages. It serves an average of 12 people a day, about 4 children between the ages of 5 and 11 and 1 or 2 infants. There is one nurse in the Calibishie Health centre.
The entire roof was lost during the passage of Hurricane Maria. Roof restoration work was done by our partner, Americares. They received roofing materials consisting of lumber, corrugated galvanized metal roofing sheets (CGI), hurricane straps and ties and galvanized roofing screws and fasteners to cover a roofing area of approximately 1586 square feet.
