The mayor of New York, Eric Adams, is in the Dominican Republic to learn about the damages caused by Hurricane Fiona, which affected the country a week ago, mainly in the eastern and northeastern areas, and to determine the type of aid to be provided.
The information was offered this Monday by the Dominican Presidency in a note, in which it specified that Adams and the commission that accompanies him, among which is the Dominican congressman Adriano Espaillat, met with the president, Luis Abinader.
The delegation will travel this Monday to the provinces of La Romana and La Altagracia, in the east, where New York doctors from the Somos Group are building and repairing houses, in addition to providing assistance to the victims, added the press release.
The hurricane, which made landfall last Monday in La Altagracia, left at least two dead, affected more than 8,000 homes and forced the displacement of 43,500 people.
