Dorian slammed into the Bahamas as a Category 5 hurricane and battered Grand Bahama, the Abacos and other islands for days. The storm flattened and flooded whole communities. The official death toll is 20, but the number is expected to rise as rescue workers reach more areas.
The Bahamian government and several organizations are accepting donations of money and in some cases supplies to support rescue, relief and recovery.
● The Salvation Army is accepting money for relief efforts in both the Bahamas and the United States here.
● YachtAid Global, which coordinates yacht operators in providing humanitarian aid and disaster response, is accepting money to purchase supplies including food, hygiene kits, medicine and tarps.
● Global Giving, a global crowdfunding platform, has set up the Hurricane Dorian Relief Fund to help local organizations purchase food, water and medicine.
