Mandeville , Manchester —Technology-based agriculture, water and energy solutions company, Isratech Jamaica Limited (IJL) has joined the drive to assist hurricane-ravaged Dominica.

A news release from IJL said the company “temporarily suspended regular business at its headquarters in Mandeville to convert its operations into a packaging and distribution hub for the relief goods destined for Dominica, valued at over $2million”.

The release said that, “extensive damage to Dominica's water infrastructure has severely compromised water safety and accessibility. IJL specialises in this area and felt duty-bound to provide assistance with expertise and equipment to help rebuild Dominica quickly and ease the pressure off the local water authorities. In addition, the company has also supplied a substantial amount of basic relief items”.

Benjie Hodara, vice president of sales and marketing at Isratech, was reported as saying that the wave of destruction presented the opportunity to rebuild using newer technologies and sustainable infrastructure to strengthen Dominica's resilience after future catastrophic events.
