Before & Now

Dublanc Health Centre

July 2, 2018
Dublanc is a village in Saint Peter parish on the west coast of Dominica. It sits on a low hillside at an elevation of 27 ft. As of 2011, it had a population of 413.
The Dublanc Health Centre serves the Dublanc, Bioche and Syndicate communities. On average, it serves about 10- 15 adults and children and on a doctor’s visit day can serve up to 40 people. On immunization days, it serves an average of 20 children.
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; galvanized roofing screws and fasteners to cover a roofing area of approximately 1476 square feet.
About 30% of all roofs were destroyed or gone in this village.
