France comes to the aid of Dominica!
The personnel on the French civil security helicopter "Dragon 972" was able to establish a first contact with the Prime Minister of Dominica, Roosevelt Skerrit, on the afternoon of Tuesday 19th September, since the country was cut off from the rest of the world by Hurricane Maria on the night of Monday, 18th September 2017. A preliminary assessment mission of the ravages caused by the hurricane was carried out.
The French teams on location made a point with the Prime Minister on the assistance that France will endeavor to bring in the coming days.
The French Embassy to the OECS Member States, in Saint Lucia, is working in close collaboration with the OECS Commission to assist Dominica in its recovery efforts.
