The devastation throughout the carribean of Hurricane Irma has resulted in considerable activity from Disaster Aid UK in both Puerto Rico and Dominica
At the request of Disaster Aid USA one of the experienced British Disaster Aid Response Team (DART) volunteers travelled to Puerto Rico to head up a team providing aid to the community.
The big issue in Puerto Rico is a lack of safe potable water and the frustration of limited electrical power to ﬁlter water.
Fortunately, Disaster Aid provided personal/family water ﬁlters that do not require electricity to operate.
The second deployment is to Dominica.
The Rotary clubs in Dominica have been instrumental in helping get this deployment underway and the DARTS are working with them throughout their time on the island.
The Caribbean Hurricane Appeal is still open and is being run through Disaster Aid UK
