The images and videos we have all seen of Hurricane Dorian are horrific; experiencing it in reality is far more emotional.
Nothing can describe seeing the pain in your friends eyes when you ask them if their families are ok and they say, “No, we lost some of them! ” or the despair you feel when they tell you they’ve lost everything they own.
Personally, I have never seen people that I have known for years feel so grateful for a bottle of water, some canned food, or just to hug you…relieved to make human contact because they are still alive.
For those who know me personally and those who don’t, Grand Bahama has been my home for the last 15 years. In that time, our island has seen many hurricanes, but nothing like this.
My friends – this community, the Bahamian people, are suffering and hurting yet in this time of great tragedy they are standing together to help and support each other and try, however painful, to rebuild their lives and those around them.
Please, join forces with Team ELEVATE to make a difference in their lives and in the communities of Grand Bahama.
