Hurricane Maria Aftermath in Dominica - HOW YOU CAN HELP!
Following Hurricane Maria's destruction of many parts of Dominica as well as many other countries, Dominica need your help! On Monday 18th September 2017 the Caribbean Island of Dominica was hit by a category 5 hurricane named Maria. This level of hurricane ripped through the island reportedly removing in some areas 95% of the roofs from housing, destroying many buildings, this amongst other tragedies including badly damaged hospitals and churches and so far 7 deaths have been reported, suspected to rise over the next few days as things become clearer. The island has been left in complete darkness with all power and signal gone and little to no contact with the outside world. Help is needed on a HUGE scale to rebuild this small island.
