Hurricane Dorian, a powerful category 5 hurricane, landed in the Bahamas in early September 2019 and left a trail of destruction. The slow-moving storm destroyed thousands of homes and left approximately 60,000 people without shelter.
As the scale of the destruction unfolds, The United Church of Canada is accepting funds to help with relief and reconstruction efforts, working with global partners the Methodist Church in the Caribbean and the Americas (MCCA) and ACT Alliance (ACT). ACT’s regional office in the Dominican Republic is mobilizing a rapid assessment team in the Bahamas to assess humanitarian needs.
Please include the people of the Bahamas in your prayers as they face the long and difficult journey from emergency response to reconstruction and recovery.
