The Aftermath of Hurricane Maria
. . . in teaching values by example
. . . building sustainability not dependency
. . . loving the rejected
. . . that disability is not inability
. . . in being present in the hard times
. . . that children should be safe strong and free
. . . We Shall Rise
Please Pray For Dominica
...and if you can, lend us a hand.
On September 18, 2017, Dominica, our once beautiful tropical island, rain-forest paradise, was devastated by Hurricane Maria with winds greater than 185 mph. Island-wide the majority of homes and businesses were partially or fully destroyed, (4 out of every 5 roofs were blown off) personal contents were mangled, saturated with rain and soaked by flood waters whilst families sheltered in bathrooms and under mattresses.
Cars and boats were smashed by flying debris or were carried away as rivers burst and the sea surged. Leaves, palms and bark were stripped from the rain-forest trees, the trees themselves broken, bent and twisted - the island turned brown overnight.
In the aftermath, our 70,000 people were traumatized, bereaved and shocked. Their life's work gone, their inheritance and future seemingly valueless.
The first four weeks were about search and rescue -- people walking miles to the surviving radio station to announce their survival. Many were anxious about food, water and shelter, some hoped that overseas relatives, friends or even strangers would send survival items or arrange for tickets to get them off the island. Running water and electricity were almost totally absent for that first month.
