THE ORIGINS OF DUKA
The Dominica UK Association, DUKA was established in 1976 following a merger of two small Dominican groups operating in East London. In 1978, DUKA gained full Charitable status from the Charity Commissioners for England and Wales. DUKA's first major project was the Hurricane David Relief Effort in 1979 involving the collection of clothing and foodstuffs from all over the UK for shipping to the "Nature Island". DUKA has continued to address the needs of our communities both in the UK and Dominica, and aims to do so even more visibly in the future.
