On the 18th of September 2017, the island of Dominica was hit by Hurricane Maria, a category five storm which brought extreme winds of 260 km/h and heavy rainfall. The storm caused severe flooding and landslides, damaging an estimated 90% of the buildings on the island, and leaving thousands without safe homes or access to clean water.

Coordination groups have been activated in the following areas: Shelter; Information Management; Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH); Education and Protection; Food Security; Health; Logistics; and Early Recovery.

An inter-sectoral MHPSS Working Group has been established to promote an effective, coordinated and focused inter-agency response to the MHPSS needs of the affected population. This online platform may be used to share relevant information and useful resources (e.g. MHPSS assessments, activity maps, tools etc).
