THE BARBADOS CARES initiative raised $119 385 for storm-impacted Dominica.

This figure was revealed today at a Press conference held at the Copacabana Beach Bar on Bay Street.

Representative of the Barbados Cares group Damien Sorhaindo expressed gratitude to all the contributors to the cause.

During the weekend of September 25 to 27, three entertainment events were held across Barbados, with the proceeds going towards the rebuilding of the island which was impacted by Tropical Storm Erika.

It was revealed that the funds will go towards two major projects including purchasing twelve 1000-gallon tanks at a cost of US $7 300, for Dominica’s water company DOWASCO.

The remaining funds will go towards a school rehabilitation project which will benefit the students and teachers of the Coulibisterie Primary School which that was damaged extensively and deemed unusable.

A section of the nearby Salisbury Primary school will be rehabilitated to house the school roll of the Coulibstrie school. (TG)
