Challenge

On September 1, 2019 Dorian reached Category 5, with maximum sustained winds of 185 mph while making landfall in Elbow Cay, Bahamas. Dorian made another landfall on Grand Bahama several hours later. The ridge of high pressure steering Dorian westward collapsed on September 2, causing Dorian to stall just north of Grand Bahama for about a day. It is the strongest known tropical system to impact the Bahamas. On September 6th Dorian made landfall at Cape Hatteras, NC devastating Ocracoke Island

Solution

All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts after Hurricane Dorian. Initially, funding was provided to help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. The fund is now transitioning to support longer-term recovery efforts run primarily by local, vetted organizations in The Bahamas, the United States and the Caribbean. We will support psycho-social care, and physical, economic and emotional rebuilding.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like Hurricane Dorian. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors.

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
