Roseau, Dominica- Monday, July 27, 2020 – Dominica Red Cross launches a music video to remind

the public of the steps to stay safe and healthy during COVID-19.  
Artist Carlyn XP gives her musical talent and celebrity status to the initiative, to support the work of
the Dominica Red Cross as it continues to spread the facts to help people protect themselves, their
families and their communities. 
The Red Cross is requesting that people do not let their guard down as the borders reopen. 
“We have been able to stop the spread of COVID-19 in Dominica, but it is absolutely important, that
we encourage the public at large, to continue taking measures to protect themselves and others by
the regular washing hands, covering of mouths and nose when sneezing, practicing social
distancing and wearing masks at all time” says Mr. Reginald Winston- President of Dominica
Red Cross Governing Board.
The Dominica Red Cross as an auxiliary to the Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica is
concerned about the health of the nation and has been supporting communities throughout the
COVID-19 pandemic by providing psychosocial support, delivering hygiene and food kits to people
in quarantine, and spreading correct information about the pandemic. With the COVID-19
pandemic constantly evolving, the message in this video is a timely reminder that facts not fear help
us to stop the spread. 
The launching of this video serves to remind us all that this pandemic is not over and that we
should not be complacent but persist in practicing the recommended protocols.

Please view the video below:


This creation of this video would not be possible without support from the International Federation

On this World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day, Dominica Red Cross Society is especially proud to recognize the work of its volunteers and staff who are doing everything they can to support communities affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We always say that the Red Cross is everywhere for everyone, every day,” says Mrs. Sandra Charter-Rolle

“In 2020, this is more important than ever. Our volunteers are hard at work helping vulnerable individuals and communities to protect themselves from COVID-19, and we’re still providing many other services that people need to keep themselves safe and healthy.

“Each and every volunteer in Dominica deserves applause, and we encourage everyone to #KeepClapping on 8 May.”

 

Dominica Red Cross Society volunteers have been active in communities since the novel coronavirus was first detected: helping people to prepare, sharing life-saving health information to stop the spread of the disease, and working to limit its impact on the most vulnerable members of society.

These programmes carried by the Dominica Red Cross is well known for in Dominica. Every year, we reach more than 500 people with a diverse range of services tailored to local needs, such as First Aid Training, Medical Services and Welfare Programs.

Mrs. Sandra Charter-Rolle says: “We may not be physically close during this time of social distancing, but we will always be here for you.

“This is a difficult time for everyone, but I see so much hope in the bravery and dedication of not only Dominica Red Cross volunteers, but also that of the millions of volunteers and staff members in 191 other countries around the world. This global solidarity will help the world not only survive this pandemic, but also help it to thrive afterward
