Bahamas Relief Reception
Time & Location
About the Event
Please join the Caribbean American Cultural Arts Foundation to support our Hurricane Relief Effort for the Bahamas. This special event is a global initiative impacting deserving children of THE GRAND BAHAMA CHILDRENS HOME.
100% of the proceeds go towards The Grand Bahama Children's HomeThe Children’s Home was ravaged by Hurricane Dorian.
Thirty-two children (12 girls and 20 boys, ranging in age from 3 months to 14 years) had to be bundled up and evacuated to a shelter late at night, in the middle of the storm, as floodwaters rose around them at an alarming rate. Thankfully everyone made it to safety.The children have lost everything.
The structure of the Children’s Home buildings is sound. But the contents are a total loss. The entirety will need to be gutted. The children have lost everything; from clothing to toothbrushes to books and toys. The Home itself lost all its possessions as well; fridges, stoves, freezers, sofas – everything is gone. As a result, the children have been moved over to another home on a different island, until we can restore The Grand Bahama Children’s Home.
First and foremost, we are grateful that the children and staff of the Home are all safe. Although we prepared well for hurricane Dorian with food and water supplies, generators, and battery-powered lamps, we were not ready for the sheer force of the storm, and we were helpless against the rising floodwaters
