About Supported Outreach Partners:
Hurricane Dorian, a category 5 storm hit landfall on Abaco and Grand Bahama Islands (Bahamas). In its wake, Dorian left swathes of destruction; flooding and flattening communities, leaving many missing with up to 30 dead (as of September 6). Existing local hospitals and infrastructure were seriously impacted, making rescue efforts difficult.
With such widespread destruction, assessing the needs of the population has been difficult, and reports on the situation on the ground have been slow. Certainly, with the destruction of so much of the existing infrastructure, the most immediate need is for safe drinking water and food as well as shelter. As this first phase of need is addressed, the focus will shift to rebuilding communities and helping them regain their self-sufficiency.
FAIR is responding in partnership with Operation Mobilization, through their OM Caribbean team. Their volunteers and staff will be working through their network of local churches and leaders to determine the highest needs, and the right way to help the most affected areas. Funds raised will help enable the Bahamian local church to reach out to their community with the love of Christ, providing for relief and rebuilding needs.
How Can You Respond?
Will you prayerfully consider how you can partner with FAIR to support the efforts of the Bahamian local church as they come alongside those in greatest need within their community? Donations can be made by visiting our website: fellowship.ca/HurricaneDorianRelief
Please be in prayer for the people of Grand Bahama and Abaco Islands. Pray for the Lord to be working through the logistics of relief and rebuild efforts, and that His name would be glorified through the outpouring of Christ’s love through the local church.
Sincerely in Christ,
