I encountered this exchange of greetings and thank yous which gave me a sense of pride and hope. Thank You to both organizations for your contributions to Dominica’s recovery!
“Thank you to Mission Océan for all your donations and for the wonderful day out! Sandra Watkin and the children had a fabulous time.” – Help For Dominica
“What an amazing day we had yesterday with Sandra and the kids from Help for Dominica! Sailing, plankton samples and picnics, and a car full of donations sent back to Castle Bruce, where the hurricane hit hard.” – Mission Océan
