Spotlight: Hurricane Maria
When Hurricane Maria hit Dominica in September 2017, Ms. Bibi and her husband Albert were forced to find shelter in a nearby church. The roof of their house was destroyed and most of their possessions lost. They spent weeks at the shelter, where Bibi helped cook for the community. IsraAID’s team identified more than 100 vulnerable households – like Bibi and Albert – who were unable to rebuild their houses alone. Together with a group of community volunteers, they rebuilt Bibi and Albert’s roof and enabled them to return home.
“At least I have my life,” she said. “The rest doesn’t really matter.”
