Rebuild Dominica is pleased to share some holiday cheer. Many thanks to Jean-Marie Rayapen for providing a wonderful glimpse into the recent Christmas Party hosted by Portsmouth Community Watch Association with the leadership of former Mayor of Portsmouth Adenauer “Washway” Douglas.
The Christmas Party benefited the children of Portsmouth on our beautiful Nature Isle. It was hosted by the Portsmouth Community Watch Association in collaboration with our dear allies from the neighboring island of Guadeloupe and Martinique.

Rebuild Dominica, Inc has inspired many into action: both the young and more seasoned of the Dominican diaspora. One young Dominican is Samora “Sam” Christian, who successfully launched a clothing drive from her campus at The University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES).
Sam is currently a senior at UMES and created the campaign in the wake of Hurricane Maria. Other supporters of Dominica sprung into action to support her campaign. She was able to fill and ship 4 full barrels of donated clothing items with the help of her parents, Gabriel and Joan Christian.
The young Christian shares updates on her blog for those seeking to support her #DressDominica campaign. Rebuild Dominica salutes this proud daughter of the soil!

Rebuild Dominica Inc. features Dr. Sam Christian, our Coordinator of Medical Operations (on-Island), with his patient Danny Williams: a patient who lost 10 members of his family in Pointe Michel’s ravine during Hurricane Maria.
Williams was introduced to the RT. Hon. Penelope Mary Mordaunt, MP, British Secretary for International Development who was visiting Dominica over the past weekend with Prince Charles. Mordaunt, better known as “Penny”, is a Conservative politician in the United Kingdom who replaced MP Priti Sushil Patel.
Williams, like others who suffered tremendous loss from Hurricane Maria, is a Dominican receiving free medical care from Dr. Sam Christian.
