ANSA McAL team brings relief to Dominica

The ANSA McAL team recently hit the ground running in coordinating care packages for the people of Dominica.

Together with volunteers from Dominica and team members from the OECS led by Grenada Ambassador to CARICOM Dr Patrick Antoine, five fully loaded containers were settled at the Windsor Stadium and unstuffed.

An army of volunteers supervised by Ruby Robinson (OECS) and ANSA McAL team members, together with the indefatigable Simon Walsh, efficiently coordinated bags of supplies ready for distribution throughout communities such as Soufriere, Scotts Head and Gallion.

They then went out into some of the communities and distributed some of the relief items to affected citizens, who are still trying to piece their lives back together since the island, which has a population of 71,000 people, was devastated by Hurricane Maria in mid-September.
