Dominicans in Montserrat hold Candle Light Vigil

The Candle Light Vigil which was held at the roundabout in Little Bay also attracted Montserratians and other CARICOM nationals living here.

Montserrat parliamentarian and residents visit Dominica

Seventy nine (79) passengers from Dominica were able to leave that island on the Montserrat Ferry.

 

Honourable Member of Parliament David Osborne visited Dominica. Upon his return he said it appeared the news of the Montserrat Ferry arriving in Dominica was not widely known and that many persons were awaiting further information on the next trip.

Mr. Osborne paid a courtesy call on Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerritt on Tuesday on behalf of the Honourable Premier of Montserrat, Donaldson Romeo.

He expressed the Government of Montserrat’s solidarity with Dominica at this trying time.

Mr. Osborne also reported that the visit gave him first hand information on the challenges that are being faced by the Dominican people.

While meeting with Dominica’s Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerritt, Hon. Osborne said he expressed to him the need for Dominica to be specific on how Montserrat can further assist.

In summarizing his visit, Mr. Osborne pointed out that the schools are being used as shelters and this comes at a time when the new school year is scheduled to begin in a few days.

He also indicated that the food boats all departed Dominica late on Tuesday evening which is an indication that the Dominican Food Trade within the region will continue.

 Montserrat Red Cross assists in Dominica crisis

The Montserrat Red Cross says it is playing an integral role in the assist Dominica initiative.

The local branch says its restoring family links programme is presently working with a number of individuals who are trying to contact families and loved ones in Portsmouth and Massacre.

Coordinator of the programme Madge Donaghue said the local branch also assisted Dominicans to leave the island.
