FUNDING AND RELIEF FOR DOMINICA

Our Southern island friends in Dominica were hit by Hurricane Maria on Monday evening, a category 5 storm on the Saffir-Simpson scale. The hurricane has literally devastated the island and electricity and communication systems are down and expected to be so for weeks to come. If you have a family member or friend that attends Ross University, you can make contact via their 24-hour hotline based in Florida: 1-800-488-8790 or message via Facebook page for information while others can contact welfaredominica@cew.or.

Here's how you can support relief efforts across the island of Dominica:
