Bahamas 🇧🇸 Disaster Relief How You Can Officially Help

Written by on September 6, 2019

September 4th, 2019 Hurricane Dorian entered the Bahamas as a category 5 hurricane causing catastrophic damage, and claiming the lives. The storm flattened, and flooded whole communities. The official death toll is 20, but the number is expected to rise as rescue workers reach more areas.

We at Reggae Vibe Media are simply looking to help the situation by giving our viewers the official ways to help in efforts to avoid those who look to capitalize on the situation.

The Bahamian government and several organizations are accepting donations of money and in some cases supplies to support rescue, relief and recovery.
