On Saturday August 29, 2015, Dominicans, Caribbean nationals and their American neighbours gathered at the sanctuary of the Evangel Assembly in Temple Hills, Maryland under the auspices of Pastor St. Clair Mitchel to launch Rebuild Dominica.
At this meeting, officers and committee chairs were elected to manage the activities of Rebuild Dominica charged with the responsibility to reach out to existing Dominica diaspora associations and friends to maximise the effect of our collective relief efforts.
Please feel free to reach out to the people below to join us as we forge ahead to rebuild Dominica stronger than ever.
