The Hon. Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit is humbled by the generosity of people both in the region and broad, as Dominica rebuilds following the passage of Tropical Storm Erika on August 27th.
Addressing the nation on Monday September 7th, Prime Minister Skerrit made particular mention of the everyday people who contributed to the relief effort.
“I speak of the fisherman from Guadeloupe who borrowed the money to [buy] the petrol to bring across some water and foodstuff in his small fishing boat.
“I think of the old lady in Antigua & Barbuda whose pension normally only affords her two cans of milk a week but who nevertheless declared at the counter that one of those cans this week would be sent to Dominica.
“I speak of the entertainers in Barbados and Antigua who are coming together to perform free of cost for the benefit of the children of Dominica,” he listed.
