Grand Bahamas Hurricane Relief Fund
We have reports of clocked winds of 180MPH. The majority of all houses in West End have lost their roofs and homes have collapsed. Residents of the area have been told they will be without power until sometime in December.
We are currently collecting supplies such as Water, food, tarps, chainsaws, Generators, Candles, Mosquito repellent, etc.
We need to get these supplies to Grand Bahamas via West end. We have confirmed the airstrip will be open and the port of entry will accept the supplies.
We have coordinated several Charter Aircraft and vessels to carry these supplies from PBIA/Palm Beach Inlet to West End. If you have a boat and would like to carry supplies in a coordinated crossing then please contact us. We have already started to receive several supplies and are asking those who can help to please make a financial contribution or donation of supplies to support the transport costs by charter aircraft.
If you can donate supplies, please message us and we will provide you with the location that these supplies can be dropped off.
The areas these supplies will support include West End, Freeport, Port Lucaya, McLean’s Town, Sweetings Cay, Etc.
If you can help these poor people, please do so by making a donation today.
This is a donation for charity to support the Bahamians in need of supplies after Hurricane Matthew has ripped their Island and lives apart. All donation proceeds (regardless of the amount) donated will be used to pay for fuel costs and supplies to transport these supplies to Grand Bahama Island.
Thank you for your consideration in helping our friends in the Bahamas.
Stay Tuned... More updates to come
Thank you to all those who have contributed and donated supplies for this relief effort! The Bahamians are truly thankful for your thoughts and contributions. A special thank you needs to be given to Patrick Koenig Jr., Sarah Koenig and the entire Koenig family for coordinating the majority of all of these relief supplies and most important, offering their boat to get all these supplies to these poor families in a serious time of need. We delivered well over 10,000lbs of supplies Thursday.
The people of West End are still without power and running water. Their homes (the ones which still stand) are in serious condition and they really need construction materials along with the basic essentials for day to day living. I'm sad to report the Bahamian government NEMA from what we have been told (by several people living in West End) have not provided ANY relief supplies to these poor people. Thank God for us or there would be a serious crisis going on in the West End.
