As part of the Caribbean Love Now initiative, the campaign sent its first container of relief supplies and equipment to Dominica’s National Emergency Operations Centre, to support recovery in the islands affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
Relief supplies were dispatched from the Hardware & Lumber logistics centre on Spanish Town Road in Jamaica. The items include lumber and building supplies, canned food and water all of which were donated by Hardware & Lumber, Argyle Industries Inc., Spike Industries and the Jamaican public.
Mr. Joe Bogdanovich (4th from left), the Founder of Caribbean Love Now, expressed appreciation for the support directed at the campaign, noting that while Jamaica has been spared so far this hurricane season, the experience of Hurricane Gilbert has stirred people to act. What I saw in Dominica and Anguilla when we visited last month was heart-breaking,” he said. “The people of these islands face a very long and painful road to recovery, and I am proud that Jamaicans have acted on their compassion by helping us support that difficult journey,” he said.
