Sol Relief and the Disaster Reconstruction Authority have teamed up to build a community center and hurricane shelter for the community of Central Abaco in the Bahamas which is still recovering from Hurricane Dorian, a category 5, that devastated the area in September 2019.
With hurricane season quickly approaching, many Aboconians are without roofs and windows and many of the houses are still in the process of being rebuilt. While so much has been done in the rebuilding of Central Abaco, so much work remains to be completed. Local residents of Abaco are in need of not only a community center to bring families together, but one that will also protect them in the wake of another devastating hurricane.
In conjunction with Disaster Recovery Authority, Sol Relief has recently broken ground on the Central Abaco Community Center that will also serve as a hurricane shelter. This state of the art facility will not only provide the community with a place to bring families together, but also provide a safe haven during a storm. This project is expected to be completed by summer 2021.
The deep impact of this project is not only the building of a community center to allow locals a safe place to come together, but will serve as a sturdy, resilient hurricane shelter for these families and the community. This funding is bringing families together again, helping them to begin to pull their lives back together, energizing them, and giving them hope. It is also breathing life back into their communities.
