How To Help Bahamas after Dorian

How To Help The Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian.

While so many of us were safely enjoying the labor day long weekend, preparing for another work week and sending our kids off to school. The people of the beautiful Bahamas islands in the Caribbean were being devastated by the effects of the strongest storm to hit the Atlantic basin.

The Category 5 monstrous hurricane Dorian devastated the islands for nearly 36 hours with record storm surge and 185 mph winds. We cannot imagine the fear, terror and sorrow of the survivors. Our love and prayers go out to those who lost their homes and especially to the families who lost loved ones including children.

Join us to provide life saving medical supplies, food, water and life essentials that are so desperately needed by the people of the Bahamas right now. We have listed seven ways that you can help below, including the links to charities and organizations that we here at Lush-Fab-Glam.com have supported to help with the ongoing rescue and aid to the Bahamas Islands.

We thank you for caring and for your generous support for the Bahamas!




7 Ways You Can Help The Bahamas Right Now

Many of the organizations below were on the ground in the Bahamas before Dorian reached the islands helping with hurricane preparation efforts and setting up to help victims after the storm. While others are well known for their record response times and relief after natural disasters.


1. Help the World Central Kitchen disaster-relief team feed Bahamians: 
Chef and philanthropist José Andrés and his team are on the ground at four locations across the Bahamas to feed those reeling from the impact of Hurricane Dorian. His tweets are a real-time accounting of the storm and those working to feed everyone in need. Donations are accepted on their website and via their Paypal link.


2. Give to the Bahamas Red Cross: 
The Bahamas branch of the International Red Cross is requesting help with its Dorian relief program. Specifically, it’s looking for donations of nonperishable goods, water, toiletries, baby products, radios, batteries, candles, bedding, generators, building supplies, and, of course, cash. Make a donation here or volunteer your time here.


3. Help The Salvation Army's Bahamas branch:

Based in Freeport, Bahamas is prepared to respond as soon as it is safe to do so. The Salvation Army is taking donations to support its disaster response. All designated donations will be used for immediate and long term relief.

Donate:
  • Through The Salvation Army's website.
  • Over the phone: 1-800-SAL-ARMY (1-800-725-2769). 
  • By saying, “Alexa, make a donation to The Salvation Army.”
  • Or by mail: The Salvation Army, PO Box 1959, Atlanta, GA 30301.
  • Designate "2019 Hurricane – Dorian" on any check.


4. Donate to the International Medical Corps: 
The global humanitarian nonprofit is sending medical teams to the Bahamas to provide medical care to Bahamians in need. Donations can be made here.


5. Help fund Team Rubicon Disaster Response’s work: 
This international disaster relief nonprofit organization is made up of military veterans and first responders who do everything from rebuilding houses to clearing debris and helping organize large groups of volunteers. They were in the Bahamas early to help put up sandbags and board up windows and are now helping clean up and rebuild. Donate here.


6. Donate to the work of All Hands and Hearts Smart Response: 
This volunteer-led team provides natural disaster relief and they are “closely monitoring” Hurricane Dorian and the Bahamas. Once on the ground in the Bahamas, they plan to address the immediate needs of those affected by Hurricane Dorian and then stick around to tackle the long-term needs of the communities impacted, helping rebuild safe, resilient schools, homes, and infrastructure. Donate here.
