SANDALS FOUNDATION HURRICANE RELIEF EFFORT:
Sandals Foundation is working to assist Haiti and The Bahamas following the devastating passage of Hurricane Matthew.
‘Hurricane Matthew is recorded as the strongest hurricane to pass through the Caribbean in the last 10 years, with winds gusting at 145mph, heavy rain and dangerous storm surges.
This is the biggest disaster in Haiti since the 2010 earthquake — and 10,000 people or more are already displaced with so far a reported 108 deaths as a result of the storm. The Island of the Bahamas have taken a direct hit from this dangerous storm bringing devastation to many of our communities and families.
A special Hurricane Relief Fund has been dedicated by the Sandals Foundation, with 100% of funds going directly to our partners working on the ground in Haiti and The Bahamas who are providing emergency relief, water, food and shelter along with life-saving products to clean and sanitize local water supplies.
Donations to support this effort can be made online at www.sandalsfoundation.org with comment “Hurricane Relief”. Please note that we can only accept cash donations at this time. No donation is too small.
Thank you for your assistance to ensure that we are doing all that is possible to assist our neighbours who are facing a great humanitarian crisis at this time.
