We are grateful for your continued support of the Bahamian people during this incredibly long and difficult recovery period. And we are excited to update you on how your donation continues to make a difference.
Most recently, your donation helped deliver crucial mental health, anti-violence, and psychosocial support to hurricane survivors. This included grants to:
Project HOPE, which expanded its mental health, anti-domestic violence, and community healthcare worker programs by training more volunteers to raise awareness of organizational resources in local communities. Project HOPE also set up a 24-hour survivor hotline and employed an Office Administrator to lead their recovery work in the Abaco Islands.
Bahamas Crisis Centre, which strengthened its mental health projects across the country. This included extending its counseling sessions to more individuals and spreading awareness of domestic violence trends that spiked in the aftermath of the disaster.
Your support of the GlobalGiving Hurricane Dorian Relief and Recovery Fund is advancing community-led responses. It is also ensuring critical resources arrive in these islands, which helps communities survive now and build their resilience for the future.
Project reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to globalgiving.org by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.
If you donate to this project or have donated to this project, you can recieve an email when this project posts a report. You can also subscribe for reports without donating.
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.
