THANK YOU: 2018
The Dominica Association of Chicagoland thanks everyone for their donations and support of our efforts to help our nation continue building our lives after the devastations of Hurricane Maria. Your donations have allowed us to ship a container of 20 feet to Dominica, and the items have reached the needy. Through Gloria Walsh of Love One Teach One Foundation in Dominica, we were also able to make some cash donations directly in the hands of many families with young children involved with our Better Me, Better You program, and others in great need.
The cash donations went so well to help people purchase needed medication, help with school supplies, fees, and otherwise that we are asking for your assistance to provide more direct cash assistance to some more of those in need.
In that regard, during January 1st to the 12th of 2018, our President,
Dr. Peter K. B. St. Jean, will be on the ground in Dominica conducting house to house visits especially to the underserved elderly and families with young children. He will lend listening ears, providing hope and encouragement as needed, and teach life rebuilding techniques developed through his Peaceology framework. In addition, with your help, we want our team to provide direct cash and/or supply assistance to those in great need but are mainly underserved, as we encounter them through these house-to-house visits. We understand that great needs are still plentiful, and we want to help with some of the most difficult, little known, and hard to reach circumstances.
Please press the DONATE button to make your contribution. Thank you in advance. You can also use our contact page to submit names of any highly vulnerable persons, youth, or families that you believe need our special attention during this outreach.
We are thankful for and applaud all of the governmental and other efforts that have assisted in this recovery process, and we are happy to participate. Thank you once again, and we look forward to your continued support.
