On the return of 30 children at the Grand Bahama Children’s Home recently, a local civic organization – Kiwanis Club of Freeport – decided to make a special presentation to the young residents as a welcome back gift.

The children were relocated to New Providence immediately after the passage of Hurricane Dorian last year September, as the Home was severely compromised as a result of flooding.
