The Hurricane Dorian-affected islands (mostly Great Abaco and Grand Bahama) left many people displaced. They are now trying to survive and temporarily manage their lives elsewhere. The vast majority of the 120,000 people that lived on the devastated islands have now fled to either the United States or other islands in the Bahamas. Our teams will help with disaster relief efforts by meeting basic needs such as food, shelter, employment, and education on the most affected islands.
We are looking for teams to join us in the spring, summer, or fall on a disaster relief mission trip to the Bahamas.
We need volunteers ready to help with disaster relief through construction, demolition, and distribution of goods to the community. We are in need of skilled craftsman and unskilled labor willing to support others in a variety of ways. We also need people with big hearts to serve the people of the Bahamas.
What We Will Do
Our partner pastors in Marsh Harbour are passionate about seeing their communities restored after the hurricane. Whether it be homes, churches, businesses or schools, they are actively working to provide physical help to people whose livelihoods were impacted by Hurricane Dorian. Through physical labor, donation distribution and various community outreach programs they are coming alongside and supporting those directly affected by the destruction. They also desire to meet the spiritual needs of those whom they serve. With most schools shut down, churches in the area are seeking to engage local children and youth in meaningful ways. Service Opportunities on these Bahamas Mission Trips: Children’s ministry, feeding program support and service, sports with kids or adults; construction of homes, buildings, and a school – both simple and complex construction available. Community outreach may include things like using arts, music, and drama to engage children and families.
