EACH ONE REACH ONE.
We cannot remove ourselves from situations that continue to implicate our brothers and sisters in a spiritual, physical, emotional and psychological war. It is the inaction of those who could have and didn’t that has left our world in the state it is today. Our blood is shared, so are our joys and pains. When the rain falls, it doesn’t just fall on one man’s house top... So don’t you forget who you are and where you stand in the struggle...”
- We Have The Right to Be Right.
Bahamas Relief Efforts
As we have seen in the media, the islands of Grand Bahama and Abaco have been severely affected by Hurricane Dorian, and there are more storm systems forming on the waters. As fellow Caribbean people, we know what it is like to have to recover from natural disasters and the great distress that follows. In these times the act of Come-Unity is most important.
In these moments, we can't stand aside and look. This is a CALL TO ACTION to support efforts towards hurricane relief happening now. Presently, we are working with the National Association of Bahamians in Canada to facilitate the collection, organization, transportation and distribution of items, volunteers and services that are desperately needed. But we are also trying to create a way for individuals from around the world to help as well.
On Sep 11-15, the first round of Volunteers traveled by air to Nassau, Bahamas from airports in Toronto and Fort Lauderdale with 400 lbs of donations to physically be present on the ground. We will schedule other trips once we have assessed the situation on the ground and create some sense of structure and approach
This is a desperate situation. We want to help to facilitate urgent care and attention especially for those who may be overlooked. We are especially seeking support to help transport items from Nassau to Abaco via boats and helicopters.
ONE LOVE IS ACTION.
