Our Thoughts & Prayers go out to all those affected by Hurricane Dorian.
How to Help the Bahamas After Hurricane Dorian
What can we do to help The Bahamas? You’ve probably seen a few dozen GoFundMe accounts set up already, but there’s no time to vet those individually. If you know a specific family there or organization — please donate to them! In the event that you don’t, I’m including a handful of trusted organizations below.
THE BAHAMAS ARE NOT COMPLETELY DESTROYED…
The Bahamas are a huge nation made of 700 islands spanning the distance from West Palm Beach down toward Cuba. The majority of islands are untouched by Hurricane Dorian.
One way you can help them recover – DON’T STOP VISITING the other islands this year! Nassau, Eleuthera, Exuma, Long Island, Andros, Cat Island, Bimini, Harbour Island and others are not only fine, they’re fabulous. Contact us at www.visercalconnections.blog to plan your next trip with confidence knowing that visiting The Bahamas will help so much!
Dorian Hurricane Relief Organizations
HeadKnowles took charge after Hurricane Joaquin in 2015 and Hurricane Matthew in 2016, distributing millions in donations to islands in need. The money they receive goes directly to purchasing essential supplies and they will provide their donors with financial statements to account for every dollar donated. Donors will be able to see with all transparency that their money is being used to get Abaco and Grand Bahama up and running again.
Lend a Hand Bahamas
A registered nonprofit affiliated with a U.S. charity called Fishing for Families in Need.
Long Island Bahamas Pays It Forward
Long Island was battered by Hurricane Joaquin in 2015, so they have not forgotten how important it is to receive the right kind of aid fast. This is a trusted GoFundMe. You can send cash donations or purchase items from their Amazon list that will be bundled and brought over from the US.
Hope Force International
Hope Force International helped many after Hurricane Irma. A trusted place to send donations!
