Director of Mercy Foundation and Living Water Community visited
Dominica in January 29th-February 12th 2018.
I was saddened by the extent of the destruction and the slow pace of Rebuilding. The lack of contractors & labourers and shortage of material is severely hampering the recovery efforts. The level of destruction was shocking; every other house was damaged from total destruction to minor issues. Citizens were extremely traumatized because of past events and fear of the future. Hurricane Season is just four months away and the rebuilding for many has not even started. There are also mental and emotional needs that are not being met. Loss of employment, especially for the poor and underprivileged is also a serious challenge.
