Global Directories Rallies the Caribbean to Provide Aid to Dominica
Global Directories has rallied the Caribbean to assist Dominica with relief efforts following the devastation caused by Tropical Storm Erika. This initiative appropriately dubbed “Rally Round Dominica” donated over 400 cases of water and a large quantity of non-perishable food items to businesses and families in Dominica.
Items were collected by the Global Directories team in St. Lucia and then shipped to Dominica with the kind assistance of the Government of Dominica.
The Global Directories’ Sales Manager for the Eastern Caribbean, Vanetta Charlemagne said “The news of the effects of Tropical Storm Erika was truly overwhelming, but when we arrived in the country and witnessed the impact; it was heart wrenching. Our focus now is to ensure our customers’ needs are met at this difficult time.”
The team of volunteers also visited and provided aid relief for two Grammars schools in Roseau currently being used as places of shelter for displaced families.
General Manager for the Eastern Caribbean Collin Francis shared, “Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims and survivors of this tragedy. This initial donation to the people of Dominica demonstrates our passion for fulfilling our corporate responsibility. It is important for us to get involved in rebuilding the country and local communities; I have no doubt that the people of Dominica, through their resilience and determination will build a better and stronger country bonded with ties of camaraderie and nation building.”
