SPRINGFIELD, MO Hurricane Dorian’s unpredictable, two-week-long assault in the Atlantic Ocean has left the Bahamas in ruins. Houses are now piles of timber. Low-lying areas are still flooded. Loved ones are still missing.
Here’s what Convoy of Hope has done so far in the Bahamas:
- Delivered 23 plane loads carrying clean water, tarps, ready-to-eat food items, Crisis Care Kits, diapers, wipes, formula and two generators.
- Distributed more than 90,000 meals, 150 LuminAID solar lanterns and 500 water filters.
- Served more than 2,000 families and 7,500 individuals.
- Assisted citizens of Freeport, Treasure Cay, Marsh Harbour and Moore’s Island.
In the United States, Convoy of Hope has:
- Delivered five truckloads of resources to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
- Secured warehouse space to store the resources for distribution through the emergency manager of Ocracoke Island, and local officials and churches will coordinate this effort.

SPRINGFIELD, MO Convoy of Hope delivered eight more plane loads of relief supplies to Freeport and Treasure Cay yesterday. We also delivered product by boat to Moore’s Island. This is significant because relief supplies had not been distributed there yet.
Further evacuations are being planned for Abaco while its infrastructure is being rebuilt, so our teams are exploring ways to assist the thousands of people that will now be sheltered in Nassau.
As needs in the Bahamas shift almost daily, Convoy of Hope will continue resourcing those living there.
