Our Program & Projects
The Sandals Foundation has made a commitment to the entire Caribbean region to respond promptly to national emergencies caused by natural disasters.
The Foundation lobbies support from resort guests, trade partners, travel agents, suppliers and other organizations to bring relief to communities affected by disaster.
The Bahamas has suffered severe damage over the years as a result of hurricanes. In 2015 , Category 4 Hurricane Joaquin made landfall on Long Island causing significant damage. The Sandals Foundation initiated an extensive companywide campaign across all properties and corporate headquarters to assist with the islands’ recovery efforts.
Subsequently the Foundation repaired and equipped: the Cancer Society Scrub Hill Long Island, Long Island Resource Centre through partnership with the Ministry of Education and Ladies Friendship Club of Long Island.
In 2016, Hurricane Matthew rampaged the islands of the Bahamas. The Sandals Foundation mobilized immediate response to help expedite the process of restoring normalcy to the island’s operations. Homes of the elderly were recovered in Bains Town and the distribution of generators, tarpaulin, food and water in Grand Bahama, Andros and Nassau.
Sandals Foundation partnered with Bahamas National Trust for a Conch Conservation campaign.
The conch fishery is culturally and economically important to the Bahamas; this conchservation campaign helped to promote sustainable fishing practices and was successful in increasing awareness about the conch industry.
Television and radio PSA’s were produced for educational purposes in rural communitiets, conservation themed placemats were placed in fast food and local restaurants as part of the efforts to lobby support and increase knowledge of the campaign and its objectives.
