I am personally urging you to help Ocean Wishes Foundation, to assist the children and their families of Dominica. We as you know have friends in Dominica with Buddy Dive and Fort Young. We are trying to raise $5,000 – $10,000 in funds for this “Rebuild Dominica” project to supply them with the basic needs of food, water, and generators. A generator costs $500 EC. With your help, we can provide them with the ability to take care of their families.
We are working with Francisca Ballot, the only women dive instructor in Dominica. She was working with Buddy Dive. All 3 boats were lost, the dive shop destroyed as well as the dock. The entire dive team has been laid off for the next 4 -6 months, with no way to feed their families or repair their homes. We understand the huge loss to Buddy Dive and to the good people of Dominica. We are today asking for your help. Any amount will be enough. Ocean wishes this morning has wired $1000 USD, = $2600 EC This will give Francisca enough money to buy a generator for her home and provide her with funds to get much-needed water and food to her family and others.
As you see all the funds are going directly to people on the ground that need the help. Maybe we should call the fundraiser “Rebuilding Dominica one person at a time.” Please understand their struggle is still very real.
With all our hearts and love, Margo and Tom Peyton, founders of Oceanwishes.org
