‘Today’s task was to open up the airport road from Marigot to Roseal. The DART team began cutting and clearing windblown trees from the North and local government started cutting from the south. We met in the middle and opened the road for the first time since Hurricane Maria.’
The team are well, but clearly shocked by the devastation they’ve witnessed. Aid is only now starting to arrive (the team helped unload USAID - US Agency for International Development arriving by air today), but water, food and fuel is still in critically short supply across the island. The Government and people of Dominica have a long road to recovery ahead.
Please support DART via Justgiving (www.justgiving.com/DartInternationalUK) as they need fuel and food to get to this crew and have a team of 7 waiting in the wings who we may have to find commercial flights for to relieve their first team.
Anything you can do to help DART promote the cause would be greatly appreciated.
