The Government of Dominica has donated $100,000 US dollars to The Bahamas for restoration after Hurricane Matthew, a category 4 hurricane, hit the country.
Hurricane Matthew tore into the Bahamas last week leaving a slew of damaged infrastructure in its wake. Speaking at a Bahamian press conference yesterday afternoon, CARICOM Chairman, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, stated that while CARICOM stands ready to provide assistance in the restoration process, the Dominican Government has decided to donate USD $100,000 to the cause.
Prime Minster Skerrit noted that rebuilding will be costly but called on Bahamians to be patient in the process.
The PM is accompanied by Caricom Secretary General Irwin Larocque, CDEMA's CEO Ronald Jackson and the Dominica Government Advisor on Disaster Management Cecil Shillingford.
The PM arrived in Nassau Bahamas Wednesday where he was met by that country's Foreign Minister Fred Mitchell and various persons overseeing the disaster management.
Skerrit also met with Bahamian PM Perry Christie.
