Rubis Caribbean has invested over EC$34K locally as part of its COVID-19 relief efforts.

Nicholson Dodds, Manager, Rubis Dominica explained that over the past few months the energy company had donated personal protective gear to the Ministry of Health, Wellness and New Health Investment, including 2000 KN95 masks, 2000 surgical masks and 2000 gloves to Dominica’s first responders. He said, “The COVID-19 pandemic has also impacted our students who have had their method of learning changed.” He added, “Realizing this, Rubis has provided forty 7” Alcatel tablets with accessories to the students of Goodwill Primary School to enable their online schooling programme.” The tablets will be used when the new school year begins in September and this presentation is part of a regional company initiative by Rubis to assist the countries in which they operate across the Eastern Caribbean in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

Rubis has worked with the Goodwill Primary School since the devastating passage of Hurricane Maria in 2017 when assistance was given to rebuild the school’s auditorium.
