Dear Friend,

Due to your tremendous support, UNICEF has been able to provide critical supplies to children and families affected by Hurricane Dorian. Within 3 weeks of the hurricane, UNICEF and partners were able to achieve the following results:

  • Delivered water, sanitation and hygiene supplies to 4 clinics, reaching 5,000 people 
  • Trained 65 school counsellors and school psychologists, including 25 pre-school teachers, to deliver improved psychoeducational care.
  • Procured supplementary recreation supplies to support children in 42 public schools in Nassau to host children evacuated. 
  • Worked with partners to repair four schools in Grand Bahama to ensure they are recovered and safe
    to reopen with capacity for 2,000 students
  • Through UNICEF-supported activities, over 300 children and caregivers living in shelters managed by the
    Department of Social Services, received culturally relevant psychosocial support services to address the psychological effects and social disruptions caused by the disaster

While the needed support identified by the Bahamian government has been met, UNICEF remains committed to supporting children and families in the Caribbean region. Thank you for your tremendous support of this work and for partnering with UNICEF on behalf of children and families affected by this disaster. 

In Partnership,

Whitney
