Before & Now

Calibishie Health Centre – Dominica

June 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.
