On Wednesday September 13, the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development launched a campaign titled “Helping to Rebuild: Food and Supplies Drive” to benefit the hurricane-ravaged islands of Anguilla and Barbuda. For this campaign, the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development challenged its staff and its agencies to contribute non-perishable food items, cleaning supplies, clothing, toiletries and baby items. Forty boxes of food supplies, seventeen cases of water, eight large bags of toilet paper were presented to the NGO, Is There Not A Cause (ITNAC) on Friday September 22. Given the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria in Dominica this past week, these supplies will also form part of the shipment to benefit Dominica.
