The Tank-Weld Group has made a donation to Dominica in the wake of Hurricane Maria’s destruction.
The Jamaican-based company has donated 14,000 sheets of galvalume sheeting valued at EC$540,000 to the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) who have received it on behalf of the Dominican Government.
The donation could not have come at a better time, according to Dominica’s Foreign Minister Ms. Francine Baron.
“Tank-Weld’s donation will enable the CDEMA as well as military engineering units from Jamaica and other CARICOM states to continue their support to the Office of Disaster Management for emergency and reconstruction programmes on the island,” the minister said.
The Housing Minister Mr. Reginald Austrie added “I have to applaud Chris Bicknell and Garnet Roper of the Tank-Weld Group and; its partner OSLO Bulk for their generous contribution towards our struggle on the front line of climate change. It represents a very strong commitment of the private sector.”
