Relief Flown to Island Residents Cut off by Hurricane Dorian

Samaritan’s Purse has established a base of operations in Marsh Harbour—working to bring emergency shelter material, clean water, and critical supplies to families who lost everything.

Marsh Harbour, a small town of fewer than 10,000 people in the Abaco Islands of the Bahamas, hit international news as Category 5 Hurricane Dorian made landfall there on September. 1. The area was simply devastated—communities have been reduced to piles of rubble and the few houses that are still standing have been severely damaged.
