The twin challenges of Hurricane Dorian recovery and COVID-19 on an island nation are daunting. But longtime GlobalGiving partner Lend A Hand Bahamas rose to the challenge. See how they’ve kept up with the ever-changing challenges of the past year:
“In the last 18 months, more members of our community have come to count on Lend a Hand as a trusted resource, Mitsy Burrows, Executive Director of Lend A Hand Bahamas, said. “We are optimistic about the future and our opportunity to expand our programs with the help of our donors.”
This is only one example of how your donation had made a real difference for people like The Bahamas. Thank you for making this work possible.
But despite the amazing success of our partners like Lend a Hand, there is still much work to be done. By signing up for a monthly donation to the Hurricane Dorian Relief and Recovery Fund or supporting one of our Bahamian partners, you can help us continue supporting recovery efforts that last.

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.
We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.
They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
