Urgent need for food and water in Dominica

Local and regional officials spearheading different efforts in Domincia have warned that thehumanitarian situation on that nature island will worsen if relief is not delivered in a more organized manner.

The regional and international community have been mobilizing relief since the passage of Hurricane Maria over a week ago. However, people in some areas are still without food, clothing, water and other basic necessities.

Thomson Fontaine, a Dominican Economist, said the relief effort is yet to start in earnest despite the fact that several roads are now clear.
