Only two days before Christmas, the day of giving, a video emerged on social media of a family of seven, a mother and her six children crammed inside a ramshackle single room made of wood- their home for several long months.
Marella George, reported in the Facebook video that her family is not comfortable and has been living in this condition following a fire involving their home earlier this year.
The children also appeared in the video saying that they are not having a good Christmas.
Dominica’s Asa Bantan is a bouyon artist making waves since he came on the scene. These days he’s not only famous for Dominica’s indigenous sound but for his regular donations to causes which involve children.
He used a holiday event to raise funds to assist the unfortunate family and was able to accumulate $500.
The Bouyon star, matched that with an additional $500 to the money raised, donating a total of $1,000 to the family on Christmas Day.
He informed Dominica Vibes that this initiative was made a reality following contact made to him by the author of the video which surfaced social media.
Asa Bantan concluded by pleading with those is positions of authority to assist the family further, “She really needs the help so anybody in that position who can really help her and assist her with a house, it would be really good because she really needs it.”
