Dominica Needs Help

Due to evacuation ahead of Hurricane Ian, we will be unable to process and ship orders Wednesday September 28th and Thursday the 29th. We will resume office hours Friday the 30th. We apologize for the inconvenience!
Please note, global shipments are experiencing a postal delay of at least a couple weeks. Please see our list of European and Canadian distributors here. Thank you!

 

On August 27th, 2015, the Commonwealth of Dominica, a small island of only 289 square miles in the Caribbean, was hit by Tropical Storm Erika, resulting in widespread catastrophic damage and death.  

Twenty people are confirmed dead and others are still missing. Damage to homes and local businesses has left hundreds homeless and many without a means of income. Many major bridges were destroyed and the roadways have been rendered impassible.  Access to essential services including communications, electricity and clean water have been severely disrupted.  

To compound matters, the main airport on the island was severely damaged, keeping much needed relief supplies from getting to those who so desperately need relief.   

Dominica Marine Association is appealing to the international marine and yachting communities to assist us in any way possible.   

All proceeds from this fund-raiser will go directly to the Dominica Red Cross, the Dominica Marine Association water taxi efforts, and to the office of Disaster Management.   

We would be grateful if you can find it in your heart to assist us in this great time of need. 

Yours respectfully, 

Hubert Winston 

PRESIDENT 

Dominica Marine Association
