Hurricane Dorian Relief

Hurricane Dorian Relief.

Please support the relief efforts in the Bahamas after the destruction caused by Hurricane Dorian.

 

Dear Friends

By now we have all seen the photos and videos of the total destruction in the Bahamas caused by hurricane Dorian. The destruction is every bit as bad as that caused by hurricanes Irma and Maria two years ago in the Leeward Islands. Based on what we have learned from these terrible hurricanes and how best to respond to them, we suggest that you avoid the many go-fund-me sites and contribute directly to the NGO’s who have the equipment and resources to be effective.

We were particularly impressed with Convey of Hope based in Springfield Missouri. They were on island early after Irma providing necessary medical supplies, portable food kitchens and trained personnel. They have the resources to move quickly with necessary relief and remain for the long haul.

Another organization that is already in the Northern Bahamas and serving meals to families in need is World Central Kitchens. WCK is flying in meals from their kitchen facility in Nassau and has establish a relief kitchen in Abaco with a second in Grand Bahama coming soon.

Please consider donating to either of these organizations or other non-government relief organizations as the most effective way of helping those in need.

If you prefer to donate through Sailors For Hope, please donate to our General Fund and we will insure that all donations go directly to those groups on the ground providing direct aid to those in need..

Sincerely
Don Makowiecki
