A $50,000 donation from the Lyford Cay Club Charitable Trust (LCCCT) helped to jumpstart a new food distribution collaboration on Grand Bahama with the international humanitarian organization GlobalMedic and the entire Rotary organisation based on Grand Bahama Island.

With the financial contribution from LCCCT, the five Rotary Clubs of Grand Bahama and Global Medic were able to expand their support to vulnerable families impacted by Hurricane Dorian and the COVID-19 pandemic with the distribution of 2,400 initial food kits. Distribution started on October 5 and will be ongoing in the community.
