Description

Building the Capacity for Resilience

Dear friend,

Please join us to raise money for a sustainable future for Dominica.

Frequent and highly destructive natural disasters affecting Africa and the Caribbean are now an ever-increasing reality. We can no longer afford to be sceptical about climate change and the impact it has and will have on our people. It is not someone else's issue, it's ours.

Within a 5-week period, we all sat astounded at the news of the Sierra Leone mudslide that killed in excess of 1000 people, as well as wrecking the lives and livelihoods of thousands more. This was followed by hurricanes Irma and Maria, storms that wrought devastation across the Caribbean.

Maria has brought Dominica to its knees. KBLA plans to install a number concrete roofs on buildings so as to provide long-term, sustainable shelters, that will help to save lives and limit damage in the inevitable event of future natural disasters.

Our focus on Dominica is driven by both the island’s desperate need and thus far, patchy global support.

We can no longer consider donating as a one and done action. No doubt, single acts of kindness are essential to help alleviate immediate suffering, but now is the time to revise our thinking, become more strategic, focussed and involved.

Building the capacity for resilience includes the following:

  • Fundraising to providing permanent and durable shelter solutions,

  • Contributing to long-term development and sustainable reconstruction, guided by the affected local communities, governments and civic organisations,

  • Playing our part in raising awareness and interest in community as to the impact environmental change has on the land, our families and friends in Africa and the Caribbean.

Your support is very much appreciated.

Together, We Can Make it Happen!
