Ongoing Relief Efforts

Since the devastation of Hurricane Dorian struck the Bahamas, Marine Education Initiative has been working hard in partnership with Lend a Hand Bahamas, a Bahamian nonprofit organization, to support evacuees and individuals impacted in Grand Bahama and Abaco. We have collaborated with and supported the YMCA in Grand Bahama to help them get their operations up and running to continue to serve the amazing youth in their community. In addition, we have been financially assisting with the support of evacuees in Nassau, Bahamas with toiletries, food items, and other much-needed materials through Lend a Hand Bahamas. To date, we have disbursed thousands of relief items thanks to our generous supporters. Since the hurricane made landfall in September we have been assisting with weekly and some times bi-weekly disbursements of items in Nassau to aid evacuees and have assisting many of our American donors in sending materials over to the Bahamas to offer assistance.

We are working on an exciting new initiative to help support the struggling fishing community who lost many of their livelihoods in Grand Bahama. We will also be working to integrate our marine science/conservation education program into Grand Bahama and Abaco in the coming months to offer the children a fun and educational experience. Stay tuned for some great new programs as we continue to partner to assist our neighbors in the Bahamas and thank you for empowering us to achieve a greater impact.
