D.O.M members with some of the recipients in the “Back to School giveaway”

The Dominica Orlando Movement (D.O.M) group had its second annual “Back to School giveaway” on Saturday July 20th 2019 at the Junction Bar and Restaurant in Orlando Florida.This giveaway event was initiated for the altruistic purpose of acknowledging the Dominicans living in Central Florida and showing support for education.

One of the imperative factors of D.O.M’s existence in today’s society is establishing a legacy for the youths of tomorrow-our future.

The Dominica Orlando Movement was formed in September 2015 by a group of passionate and cultivated individuals who wanted to assist Dominicans living locally and abroad –one of the main factors responsible for the group’s formation was the horrific Tropical Storm Erika that severely damaged the island of Dominica; this was an opportunity to unite and serve our country by promoting awareness, donating supplies and providing financial assistance to the Commonwealth of Dominica.

D.O.M is an active group now in its fourth year of existence. The organization has raised over ten thousand dollars in monetary contributions and and supplies to assist Dominica after back to back weather catastrophes that resulted in loss of lives, loss of homes and unemployment to the citizens in Dominica. D.O.M is aware that it takes a “village” to raise a family and the organization wants to be part of the construction team that continues to assist in the rebuilding of Dominica.

D.O.M’s President Marhala Joseph states, “ we will strive to continue the back to school giveaway. It is an important aspect of the group and it feels good to give back and alerting the Dominican community in Central Florida that you are not alone, we are here and we are here to help in any way we can.”

The Vice-President of D.O.M recaps the importance to Dominicans living in Central Florida that we Dominicans aren’t to forget where we came from, how we got here and to continue the legacy of knowing our history, by all means, it begins with education.

D.O.M recognises that it could not give back to the community without the support of members and sponsors and wishes to say a big “thank you” to its fan club.

“Stay tuned,” states a release from D.O.M as the organization anticipates “bigger and better things to come!”

The search has been called off for the victims of a plane crash which occurred in the sea off Marigot on Sunday 16th February 2020.

Earlier reports indicated that the French-registered aircraft, which was carrying 4 persons, had taken off at about 6:43 pm from the Douglas-Charles Airport destined for Le Raizet Airport in Guadeloupe.

“Investigations continue into that missing plane; the police have recovered some debris but we have not recovered any bodies,” Police Chief Daniel Carbon said at a news conference recently. “The search has been called off.”

Meantime, carbon said no arrests have been made following a recent shooting incident which occurred in Picard, Portsmouth at 11:00 pm on February 4th 2020, resulting in the death of a Chinese national.

The deceased is Zing Jian Yong, a 49-year-old male residing at Picard, Portsmouth.

“We are investigating that matter. We have pursued every lead that we had intensively. We brought in a number of suspects and interviewed them and investigations continue,” Carbon revealed. “We have not made any arrests or charged anyone for this crime.”

The police chief condemned this incident and called on the general public to provide the police with any information or evidence to help to bring the criminal/criminals to justice.

“We have been getting some tips but we have not yet solved it,” he said. “I have a strong feeling that we might solve this crime, but again the information and evidence are out there…there must be somebody who knows what happened, who did it.”
