Hurricane Dorian Fishermen Relief

By Nicholas Metropulos | Executive Director

These past few months have been a difficult time for many. For the fisherfolk on Grand Bahama Island, it has been especially tough. After Hurricane Dorian made landfall last year, many fishermen and women were left with nothing, and many were struggling to feed their families or work. Now COVID-19 has once again devastated the Bahamas by shutting the country to tourism, which is the main source of income for most. Fishermen and women have been severely impacted by the shutdown both professionally and as they attempt to feed their families. 

In collaboration with our amazing partners, we were able to assist 58 fishermen and women in Sweetings Cay and Grand Bahama Island by donating eight 30 HP engines as well as distributing fifty $200 vouchers to purchase much-needed tackle supplies at a local marine supply store.

 Although we are just scratching the surface with this effort, it has already made a tremendous difference in the lives of those most affected. Thank you to all of those who have supported our hurricane and COVID-19 relief efforts to make this work possible.
