How many like for this wonderful lady from Kalinago Territory, Dominica, weaving a basket during a visit with our partners European Commission – Civil Protection & Humanitarian Aid Operations – ECHO to the country.

Did you know that with support from our partners we continue providing livelihood support to over 400 hurricane-affected Dominicans – 42 percent of the women – in 16 communities across the island in a Government-led initiative?

Women and men are cleaning and clearing debris, including in communities and some tourism sites. Working round the clock with another hurricane season on its way.
