I am raising money because in the days, weeks, months after Hurricane Dorian moves along, both Grand Bahama and the neighboring Abaco Island will Be in desperate need! The majority of those islands' built infrastructure both private and commercial, is under water including hospitals & Airports. There is, at present, no water; and there will be no power/electricity I suppose. This is the worst our country has likely ever seen.
I’m beginning relief efforts now so that once the storm has passed and we’re able to provide relief we can immediately. I’d like to not only help with the provision for supplies & essentials but also counseling/mental care support as the hurricane has taken an unimaginable emotional and psychological toll on adults and children from young to old alike.
My family and I pledge to personally donate 5k to this effort and my plan is to distribute it and additional contributions to various organizations around the Bahamas that are truly supporting the relief, recovery and wellness of Bahamian people! Once the airports open up I will personally make a trip to ensure funds are use to REBUILD our beautiful Island not only physically but mentally.
Thanks in advance for your donation to a great cause. I will post where every dollar was distributed, what was purchased, and also update you on the affect it has had! God Bless! #NoCeilings
