BAHAMAS RELIEF EFFORT
LAND, SEA & AIR
Hurricane Dorian, one of the strongest hurricanes on record, devastated communities in the Bahamas with storm surge as high as 23 feet. More than 13,000 houses in the Grand Bahamas and Abaco Islands destroyed. Mission Resolve is coordinating a unified relief effort to provide hurricane victims with maximum long-term support to rebuild their lives and communities after Hurricane Dorian.
Leading members of the South Florida business and philanthropic communities have come together to create the Bahamian Relief Consortium as part of Mission Resolve. One hundred percent of net proceeds raised by Mission Resolve will go directly to provide relief to the children and families affected by Hurricane Dorian. Mission Resolve’s rapidly growing coalition includes senior executives from Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line, Resolve Marine Group, Entercom Communications, Celebration of the Sea Foundation, Broward Workshop, South Florida Chapter of Entrepreneur’s Organization, The Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce, Keys Strong, Innovative Group, Gold Aviation, JetScape, Tropic Air, Premier Protection Insurance Services, Dimor Aero and Marine Connection, as well as representatives from numerous various state volunteer organizations.
Working together, Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line and Mission Resolve are engaged in daily direct communications with the Bahamian government – including Deputy Prime Minister Kevin Peter Turnquest – to determine the critical areas of need in order to serve as a liaison for those looking to assist in the Hurricane Dorian recovery effort.
