The Bahamas Needs Your Help To Recover
Join us in assisting all those affected by the devastating hurricane #Dorian and donate to the American Red Cross. Without all of us, they can’t help the Bahamian people rebuild and recover from the Category 5 catastrophe. This historic natural disaster pummeled the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama, spreading its arsenal of forceful winds howling (185 mph) and heavy rain pounding the islands.
Lost Lives, Missing People And 13,000 Homes Destroyed
So far, at least 45 people have lost their lives, hundreds are missing and over 70,000 are homeless. No power, no running water, and endless tons of rubble. What was once a thriving picturesque resort community is now a pile of debris, surging waters and hopelessness. Think underwater homes, submerged school buses, upside down boats, torn roofs, collapsed trees— all in the midst of sweltering heat.
