Challenge

On September 1, 2019, Hurricane Dorian made landfall over Abaco and Grand Bahama islands as a Category 5 hurricane. Local authorities estimate that nearly 70,000 people have been impacted, among them more than 18,000 children and adolescents. The population remaining in the affected islands - particularly children and pregnant women - are in urgent need of assistance including access to safe water, food, health care, non-formal education activities and psychosocial support.

Solution

UNICEF's immediate humanitarian targets for the children of the Bahamas are: access to safe, clean drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene; the establishment of child-friendly spaces with non-formal education activities has been prioritized to ensure that children can recover from the shock of the disaster; provision of psychosocial support for children in shelters; and support for infant feeding programs.

Long-Term Impact

Early investments in emergency response are critical to address the immediate, urgent need and help protect children from the long-term traumatic impact of the disaster. Your continued partnership and commitment will allow UNICEF to respond to this life-threatening emergency more rapidly and effectively and continue to protect the lives of every child, every day.
