A week after Hurricane Dorian devastated the Bahamas, people still require assistance. The neighborhood is coming together to help the sufferers because of this.
Teams of search and rescue workers are still searching for survivors days after the Bahamas were pummeled by the then-Category 5 storm. 45 individuals have been confirmed dead as of Wednesday afternoon, but that figure is anticipated to rise.
At a volunteer event in Yonkers, everyone was thinking about the death and destruction that had occurred more than 1,100 miles away. Dozens of workers, including those from Sandoval, were preparing medical and humanitarian packages to be delivered to the islands.
The supply packs will be delivered to the Bahamas by the start of the following week, according to the AFYA Foundation, which organized the event.
Donations are still greatly needed, according to the organizers. They are gathering common things like shampoo, soap, and diapers.
The Bahamas Consulate in New York is also taking donations nearby.
Volunteers in Yonkers stated that it is more crucial than ever to lend a hand to those in need on 9/11, a day of remembrance.
For the remainder of the month, the AFYA Foundation and the Bahamas consul general will accept donations for the sufferers in the Bahamas.
