I am very excited to announce a new partnership with the Dominica Infirmary. I've been mulling over the project for months now and finally came to terms with the management of the institution over the last couple weeks.
Here's the full press release that will go out to the media on October 5, 2020:

Amid the challenges of the global pandemic, there is light at the end of the tunnel for the Dominica Infirmary. Local entrepreneur and acclaimed photographer, Mr. Yuri A Jones, made a commitment to donate 3% of his monthly print sales (featuring Dominica) in support of the non-profit organization.
The Dominica Infirmary was born out of concern for destitute elderly citizens of the Commonwealth of Dominica. The Institution was called The Alexandra Cottage Home at its inception. This however was changed to the Dominica Infirmary in the late 1970's. The Infirmary, as it is affectionately called, houses up to 94 residents and is run under the motto: "Whatsoever you do unto the least of my brothers and sisters, you do unto me."
Director of the Dominica Infirmary, Ms. Annie St. Luce, expressed immense gratitude. “We at the Dominica Infirmary endorse this venture organized by Mr. Jones,” she said. “Proceeds generated from this venture will assist the Infirmary to meet some of its financial needs and will positively impact the care provided to the residents.”
Mr. Jones, who has two relatives at the Dominica Infirmary, expressed his satisfaction with the care they receive and felt the need to assist the organization in fulfilling their goals. “Giving back is important because it helps sustain hopes and dreams in our communities. In this case, I am happy to be able to help create a comfortable and stable environment for our elderly.” Mr. Jones promised to make these donations bi-annually; once in June and once in December. He cemented his pledge by contributing an initial Two Hundred Eastern Caribbean Dollars.
Yuri A. Jones Fine Art specializes in landscape photography, family portraits and videography. Mr. Jones is a sole proprietor, and urges Dominicans at home and abroad to support the Dominica Infirmary by purchasing his canvas prints depicting striking images of Dominica.
