Airlifting Relief to the Bahamas

Samaritan's Purse has loaded our DC-8 full of emergency supplies to airlift to the Bahamas following Hurricane Dorian’s catastrophic strike on the islands. The deadly Category 5 storm pummeled the archipelago with sustained winds of 185 mph, destroying thousands of homes and inundating entire communities. At its full strength, Dorian was one of the most powerful Atlantic storms on record.

We are in the midst of a historic tragedy. The devastation is unprecedented and extensive.” —Bahamas Prime Minister Hubert Minnis

Our plane is loaded with emergency shelter material, household water filters, and two community filtration units that turn saltwater into drinking water.

Still a dangerous Category 2 storm, Dorian is threatening the East Coast from Florida to the Carolinas. Our staff and entire fleet of disaster relief units are ready to respond in Jesus' Name as soon as the storm passes. Once we're on the ground, our volunteer teams will begin tarping roofs, cutting trees, and cleaning out flooded homes.

Please pray for the thousands of people who have already lost so much and for those who are still in Dorian's path. Pray also for our teams as they work around the clock to bring relief and to share the hope of the Gospel.
