Rebuilding a Dream: MEDICC Needs Your Help
While all the students and faculty are safe, their Faculty of Medicine was totally destroyed by the winds - blasts so fierce they riveted pieces of roofing into tree trunks and chair legs into door frames.
Picking up the pieces, the most urgent tasks for the Isle are restoring sources of food, electricity and water. Next, rebuilding their homes: of 25,000 houses, 20,000 were at least partially affected, 10,000 roofs blown away. But the bigger task ahead is to restore the Isle’s institutions, the livelihoods of its 85,000 residents—and its schools.
The Faculty of Medicine, even in temporary facilities, desperately needs to replenish stocks of reference textbooks lost when its buildings were destroyed.
