The Rotary Club of West Ottawa is committed to International Service. Part of that service includes supporting relief efforts in times of a natural disaster. This past few days have seen the devastation created by Hurricane Dorian as it wreaked havoc on the Bahamas.
Ramon Espinosa, DaNica Coto And Michael Weissenstein of The Associated Press reported: “The devastation wrought by Dorian — and the terror it inflicted during its day-and-a-half mauling of the Bahamas— came into focus Wednesday as the passing of the storm revealed a muddy, debris-strewn landscape of smashed and flooded-out homes on Abaco and Grand Bahama islands. The official death toll from the strongest hurricane on record ever to hit the country jumped to 20, and there was little doubt it would climb higher.”
The Rotary Club of West Ottawa is committed to helping those in need. To that end, we are collecting donations to contribute to the much needed resources in the Bahamas. Please consider a donation.
