Resort calls on its guests and partners to support emergency relief efforts
NASSAU, BAHAMA — Baha Mar has committed $2 million in financial aid to support immediate disaster relief efforts and long-term recovery of those severely impacted by Hurricane Dorian.
The funds are expected to be transferred to partner relief organizations in The Bahamas as well as Baha Mar’s own work in delivering emergency relief to volunteers and disaster victims.
“This donation is part of Baha Mar’s ongoing devotion to a series of continued relief efforts, including a dedicated plan and investment into the longer-term recovery for a stronger Bahamas of tomorrow,” the resort said.
Baha Mar President Graeme Davis said, “Our hearts are heavy with sadness and loss over Hurricane Dorian’s path of destruction and damage to our beloved nation and its people. Now is the time to come together and support those who need our help, especially in The Abacos and Grand Bahama. Baha Mar is spearheading ongoing recovery efforts to aid today’s victims while working towards strengthen our nation to come back stronger than ever.”
The resort said in addition to its immediate commitment, the Baha Mar Foundation is collecting financial support from its guests, partners and community. It said 100 per cent of those proceeds will go to those in need.
Baha Mar added that it will partner with local organizations and Bahamian authorities to distribute food, medicine, supplies and other essential items to volunteers and disaster victims.
Noting that it has had the honor to call The Bahamas home for the last several years, Baha Mar said, “We hope our guests cherish their memories made here and will support us as we move forward to rebuild our neighboring family communities in the Abacos and Grand Bahama.
