September Tzedakah Box Supports IsraAID's Hurricane Dorian Response
IsraAID is deploying an Emergency Response team to the Bahamas following two days of devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian, which hit the Caribbean nation with peak winds of around 300 km/hr. While the full scale of damage is not yet known, at least 5 people have been killed and 13,000 homes damaged or destroyed in Abaco and Grand Bahama islands.
Your urgent support is required to ensure that the IsraAID team can reach communities in need as quickly as possible. IsraAID’s Emergency Response team in the Bahamas will distribute urgent relief supplies, offer psychological first aid and deploy water filters to restore access to drinking water, while conducting further needs assessments in affected communities.
You can follow updates from IsraAID's Emergency Response team on IsraAID's Facebook page.
