September 2, 2019: Our hearts and prayers are with our Caribbean neighbors in Northern Bahamas affected by Hurricane Dorian. We are fortunate that our resorts were hundreds of miles away from the path and unaffected by the storm. Our efforts are now directed to galvanizing support, rolling up our sleeves and helping with the first relief and long-term recovery of those affected by this natural disaster.
While the Bahamian Government and first responders commence their assessment of damage and needs of Abaco Island and Grand Bahama Island, initial images, videos and reports indicate significant destruction and the lives of residents uprooted.
The Sandals Foundation alongside its parent company, Sandals Resorts International stand ready to assist. Interested stakeholders can make donations to the Sandals Foundation at www.sandalsfoundation.org.
100% of proceeds will go directly to the recovery process and the purchasing of water, non-perishable food, baby supplies such as diapers, formula, bottles, blankets and vaseline, medicine, bug spray and first aid resources, small radios, flashlights, batteries, non-kerosene lanterns, tents and tarpaulin.
Updates on the relief efforts will be shared in the coming days.
