The Dominica Red Cross Society has launched an initiative to
provide comfort during COVID-19 through a psychosocial support line.
The current pandemic has significantly restricted the physical interaction among persons through
social distancing as a means of managing and curbing the spread of COVID-19.
The aim of the Psychosocial Support Hotline is to contribute to the alleviation of the emotional and

People needing support can call the hotline number 1-767-611-HELP (4357) to speak with a Red
