Hello. My name is Maranique Russell and I hail from the island of Abaco in the Bahamas. My family and I was affected in a negative way by Hurricane Dorian.
Luckily, my mom and little brothers were here with me on PEI. But, my dad stayed home and rode out the storm. The storm came with high tides, high winds, and massive tornadoes. Unfortunately, the tornado hit our home that we were two weeks away of moving into. My parents have worked so hard and made many sacrifices to build their home back and now it's gone. The apartment that they were renting until time to move into the house is damaged and had 5 ft of water inside, so everything is completely gone or damaged. In spite of it all, we are extremely grateful for life.
If you would like to help us in any way, feel free to donate to our GoFundMe.
