Thank you to everyone who has supported our efforts to assist the Bahamian people as they recover from Hurricane Dorian. We are incredibly grateful for your belief in our mission and for your support.
What We Accomplished on Bahamas DRM 1.0
Bahamas Disaster Response Mission (DRM) 1.0 was a great success, and provided important contacts and learning for future international deployments, including Bahamas DRM 2.0. During the DR Team’s first mission, they:
- assisted more than 300 people, including 5 former law enforcement officers (two with 30+ years of service);
- tarped 21 roofs, including a preschool/daycare;
- cleared 39 trees;
- mucked-out 3 houses;
- mucked out & tarped the roof of 1 church (Tabernacle Baptist Church);
- delivered 160 meals;
- delivered 1 generator; and
- handed out small toys and candy to children.
Just as important to SDIA, the DRM provided our nation’s Veterans and First Responders with a way to #GetOffTheCouch and continue serving! We could not have accomplished this without YOUR donations.
What’s Next – Bahamas DRM 2.0
SDIA is deploying Bahamas DRM 2.0 TOMORROW, with the Disaster Response (DR) Team returning to the US on October 23. They will be mucking out homes and buildings, as well as providing roofing & small home repairs – another first for us! – so Bahamian residents can begin rebuilding their lives.
How YOU Can Help!
As with the first mission, Bahamas DRM 2.0 will be an expensive but important undertaking. We invite you to join the DR Team by making a financial donation to allow our volunteers to help as many Bahamians as possible on your behalf.
Every dollar will make a difference in the lives of residents. No donation amount is too small – if you can give $1, $5, $500 or $5,000, every penny will be used in assisting the people of the Bahamas.
Thank you for your support of Sheep Dog Impact Assistance, our nation’s Sheep Dogs and communities affected by natural disasters.
