Dominica is a favorite destination on Island Windjammers cruise itineraries. The island has been terribly damaged by Hurricane Maria. Diamant, currently located in Grenada, can reach Dominica in two days by sea. Captain Phillip Rafter and his crew will be heading to Dominica in two to three weeks to provide any assistance possible. We are raising funds to help purchase building supplies, tarps, food, and other necessities. We will liaise with relief organizations directing efforts in Dominica to ensure that items go where they are needed most. Supplies will be sourced both in Grenada and the US. A cargo container will be sent via ocean freight from Miami next week (Sept 27).

That is true that Dominica doesnt have a mother country. the other problem politically is the President of Dominica leans to the left and supports Venezuela it's system of government. He wouldn't get much help from Venezuela with all of there problems glad to see IWJ is helping these people

There has been amazing support for IWJ's Diamant to Dominca relief effort. Over $7600 raised with a goal of $10,000. Help reach the goal.

The shopping has begun....tarps, tools, refillable water bags, food, hygiene supplies, etc has been purchased.

Thanks to Captain Phillips, Operations Manager Monja and Liz for coordinating the relief effort. pompom <img src=" border="0" />

Have raised 75% of the goal thanks to everyone's generosity. If you haven't donated yet, please consider donating $5 to $10 to help IWJ reach their goal. Every dollar counts!
