Belgium sends medical kits and water purification unit with B-FAST to the Dominica island in the Caribbean
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Didier Reynders informs that our country sends B-FAST with relief supplies and a water purification unit to Dominica. This island in the Caribbean was heavily damaged by hurricane Maria. Belgium’s intervention comes in answer to a request for assistance from Dominica.
A team of 15 persons will bring the goods to the island. They will remain there about a week. They will install the water purification unit and hand it over to a local manager. The team will also deliver medical kits from the World Health Organisation.
This action takes place within the international aid structures, those of the United Nations as well as those of the European Union.
