Unity of UK St Lucian Associations went to Dominica’s aid by donating six boxes of perishables items after tropical storm “Erika” hit the island on 27 August 2015. It was reported that the storm triggered floods and mudslides that killed at least 31 people. The country’s infrastructure has been devastated. This has set the nation’s developmental progress back 20 years, as hundreds of homes and multiple other structures were destroyed.
