Weʼve raised £997 to restore Dominica. Devastated by category 5 hurricane Maria, the damage is colossal. As an independent island, help is urgently required!

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
A catastrophic disaster has hit the Windward Island of Dominica, which is also know as the Nature Island of the Caribbean and is often mistaken for Dominican Republic. Hurricane Maria has completely devastated the Island, where we have many family members living, as do so many others, with the population being just over 71,000 people. According to the Dominican Prime Minister - Roosevelt Skerrit - speaking in the early hour of the morning during the hurricane, on Tuesday 19th September, Dominica has 'lost all that money can buy'. Dominica may never recover from this tragedy. Our concern now is securing medical and emergency aid (shelter, water, food, clothing etc.), the rescue operation of people who are trapped and dealing with the physical damage to the Island.
So we are appealing to everyone to give what they can, to help to support the restoration of this beautiful island and the livelihoods of so many people. Any donations will be greatly appreciated, as it will be a slow process getting aid to this island. As independant fundraisers, we will make sure the money gets to the right people and will be sure to document and update you on the distribution of the funds raised.
Please support our cause ❤

I was shocked to see the devastation on the One Show this evening. I briefly visited Dominica in January so to see the devastation now was deeply saddening.

We have set up this page up as we have many family members living in Dominica. We want to help as many people as possible on the island, not just our families but every family that we can reach. We will do everything in our power to get as much aid and supplies to the island.
