Hurricane Dorian

The effects of Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas were among the worst experienced for any natural disaster in the country. Hurricane Dorian struck the Abaco Islands as a Category 5 hurricane on September 1, and a day later hit Grand Bahama Island at the same category. Damage was estimated at over US$7 billion, and there were at least 43 deaths in the country.
Thanks again Chefette for your quick response to our efforts to support Bahamas following hurricane Dorian.

NEWS FLASH

On behalf of United Caribbean Relief, I want to thank our sponsors for their help over the years, as you know our Barbados registered charity has been helping in small ways with Disaster Relief starting in Grenada following Hurricane Ivan in 2004, when we were the first on the ground in Carriacou with fishing boats full of immediate relief supplies, walking them into the north of Grenada until the ‘big boys’ could arrive from America, thus United Caribbean Trust was birthed.

In 2010 I arrived in Haiti one day prior to the earthquake keeping me there for months and consequently we were able to send up 4 containers from Barbados taking months to distribute into the remote tent cities.

Again in 2017 we were the first container to leave Barbados for Antigua for the people of Barbuda following Hurricane Irma only to turn around thanks to generous donation and make six mission trips to Dominica following hurricane Maria. As in the case of Dominica our main and initial response to Bahamas now will be the Sawyer PointOne Community Water Filtration System, the Sawyer Point One Filter is the fastest, easiest and most cost efficient way to get up to 500 gallons of potable water a day. Our Church package will also include Tarpaulins and Bible Studies donated by Mount Zion’s Mission Barbados Foursquare Church.

We are busy now working on transportation to get these Community Packages up to Nassau as soon as possible and then over to Freeport to distribute to the local churches. I have started making key connections in Nassau and am delighted to have connected with the Director of Samaritans Purse in Freeport. I will be travelling, God willing, up with a small team to assist with distribution to be documenting on our website.

Our second effort is to introduce a children's Post Traumatic Stress Program, this was birthed in Dominica following hurricane Maria and is called ‘Healing the Hurting Heart’ a 12 week children’s curriculum. Following the initial trip I will be returning with this program to train teachers and Youth Leaders to implement the curriculum and assist them in starting in various schools, if open and the same churches we helped earlier with the Filtration System. If there are any areas that you feel you may be interested in helping with we are seeking donations for various things including transportation costs. Thanking you for your heart to help.
