The devastation Hurricane Dorian left in parts of The Bahamas
has largely been forgotten in the news. But we have not forgotten. The Somebody Cares network of ministry partners and churches is still bringing relief to the islands and helping with the recovery process.
Just recently, Somebody Cares partnered with Bahama Faith Ministries International in Nassau to give essential supplies to 600-650 evacuees from Abaco. They were brought to the church, offered prayer and crisis counseling, encouraged with a message of hope, and given hygiene items, clothing, and other items they need. Additional outreaches to the evacuees are also be planned.
In addition, over $250,000 worth of non-perishable food, hygiene items, medical supplies, generators, tarps, undergarments, reading glasses, and more have been sent to Grand Bahama, Green Turtle Cay, and other areas badly damaged by the storm. Volunteer teams with our partners CRI and Iris Relief are distributing supplies on Grand Bahama as they help people still suffering from the trauma of their experience. Other supplies are headed to Abaco and surrounding cays with partners Operation Compassion and Abaco Relief for distribution through local churches.
