‘The Movement’ sends relief supplies to Dominica


A boat bound for Dominica will leave Antigua at 4 p.m. today full of relief items for the community of Marigot – the largest settlement of Saint Andrew Parish in northeastern Dominica.

The items were donated by members of the activist group ‘The Movement’.

Amidst the many relief pledges for the island in the wake of Hurricane Maria, many private and corporate donors, who all wished to remain anonymous, gave immediately towards the cause.

It took the group roughly, “a day or two” to solicit, collect and deliver the goods to the Fisheries Wharf on Market Street by 8 a.m. today.

“The Movement had contacted Mr. Jerry Jeremy a Dominican living in Antigua who has organized a vessel to take supplies to Marigot,” says Movement Vice President Cleon Athill.

The list of supplies includes, “water, juices, dry goods, milk, detergent, toilet paper, butter etc.,” the VP elaborates and, “the goods are going to Marigot Village Council.”

The trip down to Dominica will take approximately five hours.

“Movement House remains open to Barbudans seeking assistance,” Athill reminds, despite local and regional attention being turned to the plight in Dominica. They know the way and they still turn up for support.”
