Challenge

The geographical composition of the Bahamas makes it difficult to access and transport essential supplies. Thousands remain homeless and without access to basic needs. No potable water or electricity. It is necessary to keep this mission active in the long term in order to provide assistance on a constant basis. Nor The Bahamas or any other county government is ready to face a disaster like this. They need support from external organizations to support their efforts and limited resources.

Solution

We have inhabited a warehouse space that will provide hot meals, medical clinics and necessary assistance. Our experts cover a wide range of specialties, which offers immediate alternatives to address and manage the critical situations experienced by the citizens of the Bahamas. Our teams are distributed in more than 15 extremely damage areas providing medical assistance, drinking water and food.

We will offer hot food for over 3,000 families. Medical assistance, equipment, and medicines for more than 5,000 citizens. Specialized services, clothes, toys and school supplies for 1,500 children. First aid supplies, potable water, food, clothing, and hygiene products to over 15,000 people.
