In the aftermath of the damage caused by Hurricane Matthew to Haiti, Cuba and the Bahamas, the Dominica Business Forum (DBF) is soliciting the support of private enterprises and the general public in raising funds to assist the people of these affected countries.
The DBF is partnering with the radio stations here for a radiothon on Saturday October 22nd, 2016 from 2:00 pm.
According to an official release, the purpose of this will be to raise funds from private enterprises and the general public which will greatly aid in the relief effort to the affected countries. The proceeds will then be submitted to the government of Dominica to be forwarded to the relevant authorities.
As Dominica celebrates its 38th Anniversary of Independence, the Dominica Business Forum (DBF), appeals to the private sector and all nationals to remember their affected brothers and sisters in Haiti, Cuba and the Bahamas, as they continue to recover from the devastation of Hurricane Matthew, by making a contribution to the recovery effort in those countries.
Persons interested in making a contribution to this worthy cause can do so by tuning in to their favourite radio stations at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday 22nd October, 2016 or they can make deposits to account number 815000539 at the National Bank of Dominica.
The Dominica Business Forum seeks to foster a consolidated mechanism, institution, think-tank and voice of the private sector on matters of micro, meso and macro importance to business and civil society, and to exist alongside the respective member associations.
