The Dominica Oversea Nationals Association (DONA) in conjunction with its Aid Dominica Development Trust was set up in June 1978.
We are a Registered Charitable Organisation with the Charities Commission for England and Wales, Number 279643.
The association was established only fourteen months when, on Wednesday, 29th August 1979, Dominica suffered at the hands of Hurricane David which destroyed everything in its path, thereby causing total devastation to the Nature Island.
In responding to the severe situation Dominica found itself in the post-Hurricane David, DONA rapidly managed to gather practical and professional resources for immediate dispatch to Dominica - it was these same resources that went some way in assisting and relieving many communities in Dominica.
The symbol is the abstract representation of the future creative National and international Relationship of Dominicans living especially in the United Kingdom, the United States of America and Canada.
