I am asking for donations to be able to purchase (1) basic supplies to people displaced and in need (water, clothes, food); (2) basic first aid supplies; and (3) pet food for animals displaced. Our entire commercial areas have been flooded and/or severely damaged. Therefore, supplies will be limited and may become desperate very quickly. My sister (who lives in Nassau, Bahamas) is a gerontologist and will be working with medical personal to provide aid. I will be working with her to get supplies home quickly.
I will be headed to Freeport as soon as possible to also deliver supplies. In addition, we may also be able to ship supplies supplies via boat from Florida to Nassau (for delivery to Freeport) or directly to Grand Bahama. I have never started a fund raising campaign, but I am starting this one to help my fellow Bahamians who are in a true time of crisis. My family is in the middle of this devastation and are doing what they can to help, I feel a responsibility to do whatever I can as well.
