SOUFRIERE, Dominica, 1 October 2017: Some families in Dominica came to 'The M/V John Paul DeJoria' using their own boats to receive aid, and Sea Shepherd gave them all the supplies we had on board. By the time this woman, Flavia, showed up to ask for flour, sugar, and rice, we had already run out of our donated food supply. Knowing we would be able to pick up more provisions within days, Sea Shepherd Captain Jaspal Oberoi ran down to the ship's galley and asked our cook: 'What else do we have?' Then he made the call to give her what was set aside to feed us. Photo: Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

SOUFRIERE, Dominica, 1 October 2017 (SSCS): In Dominica, every village, every person, every street, was impacted by the hurricane. The island’s government officials call the damage "unprecedented." The once picturesque village of Soufriere, with a population of about 1400, was one of the hardest hit, as evidenced by the photos taken by Sea Shepherd on its current mission, Operation Good Pirates of the Caribbean.

Some families in Dominica came to the The M/V John Paul DeJoria using their own boats to receive aid, and Sea Shepherd gave them all the supplies we had on board.

By the time this woman, Flavia, showed up to ask for flour, sugar and rice, we had already run out of our donated food supply. Knowing we would be able to pick up more provisions within days, Sea Shepherd Captain Jaspal Oberoi ran down to the ship's galley and asked our cook: "What else do we have?" Then he made the call to give her what was set aside to feed us.

Captain Jaspal is an example of what it means to be a true leader, a compassionate human and a generous soul.

This mission brings aid and relief to those island affected by the hurricane and you can help by donating to: https://my.seashepherd.org/operationgoodpirates.
