How is UNICEF helping Bahamas?
UNICEF is quickly responding to humanitarian needs following the devastating Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas. An estimated 18,000 children and their families need urgent help. In the aftermath of the most powerful hurricane in Bahamas’ history, UNICEF has shipped 1.5 tons of lifesaving supplies that will help provide access to safe water for over 9,500 children and families left reeling by the storm. 400,000 water purification tablets, several 5,000-liters tanks for at least 2,000 people, and 1,000 Jerry cans, are being distributed to the affected communities.
UNICEF is working alongside the National Emergency Coordination Agency, UN agencies and other partners to provide humanitarian aid to affected children and families, with a special focus on water, sanitation and hygiene.
