Hurricane Dorian has killed many, destroyed infrastructure and left over 70,000 homeless. With no way to cook food, create potable water or even stay connected with the outside world families are in crisis.
This microproject will enable survivors to become self sufficient at cooking meals and creating safe drinking water.
Meeting hygiene need is essential for clean, healthy and prosperous lives, and creates a sense of dignity in those we serve. As hygiene needs are met, survivors can focus on other immediate needs; including locating shelter or fixing their damaged homes. Long term, meeting this need enables recipients to pursue a higher quality of life and remove themselves and future generations from the vicious cycle of poverty.
Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Help Babies in the Bahamas. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
