Featured in this week's blog is the handover of a cheque of 2000 English pounds from the organization of NABSW, founder, Mary Danby, to assist the hurricane ravaged island of Dominica. As we assisted in starting a Versan outpost there with an SSAT center, led by businessman, Michael Pascal, we thought it fitting to have the NABSW organization donate to the primary school that lost its roof during the hurricane.
I must advise that the island is only 16% recovered with electricity since that tragic passing of the hurricane. As we have quite a number of bright students who manage to matriculate on full scholarship to the United States, we wanted to take our hats off to Michael Pascal who is handing over a cheque to Principal Alven Abrahams for the repair of the school's roof.
