Grand Bahama Disaster Relief Foundation - Rebuilding Grand Bahama

Dear Friends of Grand Bahama,
Rebuilding Grand Bahama

Hurricane Dorian had disastrous effects for Grand Bahama. Far too many people have been left in need of food of water, and many of them were left homeless. We are deeply saddened by what the members of our community have gone through as a result of this storm and we are anxious to do everything that we can to alleviate some of their suffering in any way that we can. You can help us accomplish this by donating to our relief fund by clicking here.

We are committed to transparency and to ensuring that 100% of all donations go directly to those effected by Hurricane Dorian. Below we've included just some of the work that we've doing, and if you would like to see daily updates on our progress, follow our Facebook or Instagram pages.

One of our organizers, Rupert Hayward enjoyed spending time and sharing Hurricane Dorian aid with Otis Carey, the oldest survivor from McClean's Town. We are so thankful that we are able to help kind people like him.
GBPA Launches Independent Fundraising Arm to FUND Dorian Relief Efforts on Grand Bahama

New Providence, Bahamas – In the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian scores governmental and non-government agencies have begun the work of rebuilding the country’s most northern islands. On Grand Bahama Island, the Grand Bahama Port Authority (GBPA), under its mandate as a quasi-governmental agency, has begun spearheading these efforts to bring relief to, and provide refuge for, the thousands of residents displaced by the storm.

“What we have seen thus far is truly an outpouring of concern for the people of Grand Bahama, and it is our intention to ensure that all of that aid is being distributed in ways that it can provide the most impact for those affected,” said Rupert Hayward Executive Director of the Grand Bahama Port Authority.

The British ARMY came through with water and other supplies for the victims of Hurricane Dorian here in The Bahamas:
