Our work in Abaco post-Hurricane Dorian continued with food distribution through April 20th, 2020. We were sending about 4-5 pallets of food up every week or every other week and a local volunteer from the Abaco Shelter took them to distribution points where people in need would get food We are also working on preparation.
It is hard to believe it has been 10 months since hurricane Dorian.
With hurricane season upon The Bahamas again, we are in the process of having hurricane preparedness materials printed and we will be sharing them on social media. We are also in the process of creating a kids coloring book which will include work pages on hurricane preparedness. Even though a natural disaster is hard to plan for, we hope and pray that assisting people with ideas to help them prepare will help save lives. We are also going to be working with social services and NEMA in hopes for some of the evacuation shelters to be permitted to be pet-friendly so people can have their pets with them.
