College Students Dropout Due Dorian Storm

URGENT: Although there is 1 student (Lashad) in the picture we are 5 Bahamian students now living in Niagara, Ontario. Our names are Deangelo, Gregory, Lashad, Alton and Andrew. We were enrolled at Holland College last year and transferred to Niagara College for our last year.

The strike of hurricane Dorian has hit our families severely back home, forcing us to drop out of school to work. Due to our family members and friends evacuating or passing away and the looting going, we no longer have any financial support for our studies.  The money will be split between the 5 of us to cover rent, next semesters expenses and food. 

We came to Canada for a better education and it is dishearten to know we made it here and are so close but are not able to complete.  We would love to complete college and be the bright spot in our families current situation. Thank you for reading and God Bless.
