Thank you for supporting Hurricane Dorian Relief Efforts!
By Nicholas C. Metropulos - Executive Director
On September 1st, Hurricane Dorian made landfall, battering the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama for two straight days. With a storm surge of 23+ feet, the equivalent of a 2-story building, and wind gusts of 220mph, Hurricane Dorian left the Bahamas in a state of emergency.
Families like the one pictured above were left with nothing. Our team set out on a mission to hand deliver hurricane relief supplies to the residents on the island of Grand Bahama. With your support as well as numerous companies and organizations lending a hand, we were able to deliver much needed relief supplies to over 2,000 individuals in Grand Bahama. In addition, we have sent additional containers of relief supplies to support evacuees relocated to Nassau, Bahamas. We are continuing to work with our partner Lend a Hand Bahamas to support these evacuee families with needed relief items.
Thanks to our donors, this family - and hundreds of others in need - now have access to necessary supplies in the wake of this disastrous storm. We hope you will consider continuing to support and monitor our efforts!
