Bahamas Relief Effort – L’union fait la force! Let’s join forces to help those in need!

As you know, Hurricane Dorian has caused major damage and devastation in the Bahamas. Among those affected are many undocumented Haitian nationals who are now facing the same plight that prompted them to leave their native land: natural disaster, insecurity, poverty and a bleak future. 

While aid is needed for all those who were affected by the Category 5 storm, these Haitians have  fewer options and fewer people to turn to as they deal with the aftermath of this catastrophic event.

HNGD is currently planning a couple of fundraisers to provide assistance to Haitian expatriates in the Bahamas who have been displaced by Hurricane Dorian.The details of the plan for the relief effort are still being worked out. In the meanwhile, consider making a donation on our secure website. 

We encourage you to visit the HNGD social media sites on a regular basis so that you can get updated information:

We cannot afford to sit idle when there are so many people in distress!
