Dominica, 8 - 48hrs per week
Dominica is classed as a lower middle-income country and is the poorest of the South-eastern Caribbean islands. Located in one of the most disaster-prone regions in the world, it has a history of tropical storms and hurricanes.
On September 18, 2017, the worst natural disaster in the history of Dominica ravaged this small island nation. With wind gales as strong as 160 mph, Hurricane Maria blasted through the country, damaging 90% of all structures and knocking out all power, water and telecoms. Agencies such as Unicef and International Office of Migration, shipped in over 27,900,000 litres in plastic bottles (doesn’t include any sold soft drink bottles or food containers) and over 35,000 sheets of Tarpaulin to cover roofs in just the first two months. Now those original tarpaulins are leading to an environmental disaster as they are burnt or dumped by the community in an effort to get rid of their plastic problem.
