Building brighter tomorrows in the Bahamas
Hurricane Dorian hit the Bahamas as a Category 5 storm in 2019, going down in history as the country’s worst natural disaster.
Due to the prolonged and intense storm conditions, many lives were lost, homes and schools were destroyed, and it is estimated to have caused $3.4 billion in damages.
To help children and communities impacted by this devastating hurricane, Jeunesse Kids partnered with the All Hands and Hearts Foundation and donated $100,000 USD to support the relief efforts in the Bahamas.
WHY THE ALL HANDS AND HEARTS FOUNDATION?
The All Hands and Hearts Foundation has earned the highest 4-star rating on Charity Navigator – the largest and most-utilized evaluator of charities in the United States – for six consecutive years.
When natural disasters strike, the Foundation is dedicated to arriving early and staying late to work hand-in-hand with residents affected most by disasters, such as Hurricane Dorian.
All Hands and Hearts focuses on building safe, resilient schools, homes and other community infrastructures, while being extremely efficient with administrative expenses. Ninety-six cents of every dollar go directly to the programs and services they provide.
PARTNERSHIP UPDATE: HOW ARE WE DOING?
Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, All Hands and Hearts had completed 175 jobs with many more in progress, including construction on homes in the Bahamian Abaco islands and work on seven schools.
So far, 2,219 people in the Bahamas have been positively impacted by All Hands and Hearts, as 453 of their volunteers have cooked meals, stabilized the stray animal population and reconstructed buildings.
“On behalf of All Hands and Hearts, I cannot thank Jeunesse Kids enough for the generous contribution to support the rebuilding of schools on the islands of Abaco after the devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian.”
