Still Helping Dorian Victims in the Bahamas

Field Report by Dina Sleiman

BAHAMAS – Long after stories like Hurricane Dorian die down in the media, Operation Blessing continues to help those in need. Because of your support, we are currently beginning our second deployment in ten days to bring desperately needed disaster relief to Dorian victims in the hard hit Abaco Islands.

At our warehouse in Ocala, Florida, we loaded a forty-foot container with more than 44,000 pounds of aid. This aid included 17 pallets of water donated by the Home Depot, solar lights, two generators, and additional clean water equipment. And these vital supplies are already on the way to the Bahamas, all thanks to generous friends like you!

Hurricane Dorian Victims Need Our Help

While many evacuated the island, some are trickling back, hoping to rebuild their lives. And others never had the chance to leave. On the ground in Abaco, the Operation Blessing team is currently giving Dorian victims chlorine to sanitize their homes after so much damage.

We’re also providing essential medical care because of your support. Our OB doctors are going house to house providing mobile ultrasounds for pregnant mothers, general exams, and much more.

Clean Water and Disaster Relief

Hearing of the overwhelming need for clean water on the decimated islands, our two water engineers headed to Abaco to support the rest of the team. Thank you to Judah 1 Christian airlines for partnering with us to get them there.

In addition, the engineers brought one Aquifer 360 portable water purifier and a new generator with them. They’re already training locals on how to safely provide clean water for their families.

Operation Blessing plans to stay in Abaco and continue serving Dorian victims for the long haul as they work to rebuild their lives. Please send additional support disaster victims today!
