Help the Bahamas to Recover from Hurricane Dorian


Hurricane Dorian pummeled the Bahamas as a powerful Category 5 storm, leaving behind widespread damage to homes, businesses, and essential infrastructure. The full impact of the hurricane is still unfolding, yet we know that the affected communities are increasingly suffering from the effects of inadequate food, clean water, hygiene, and other vital resources.

The Caribbean Desalination Association (CaribDA) encourages those who wish to support the relief efforts to donate to the Pan American Development Foundation (PADF), a proud affiliate of the Organization of American States (OAS). Donations will be directed to PADF and their partners at HeadKnowles and Operators without Borders.

HeadKnowles is providing critical support to those who need it most, including food, water, shelter supplies, and other basic goods. Since 2015, HeadKnowles has successfully managed $4 million in disaster relief funds, including after Hurricane Joaquin and Hurricane Matthew. 

Operators without Borders (OWB) has volunteers ready to rebuild water access points and wastewater management infrastructure. Following Hurricane Maria in 2017, OWB supported the restoration of water service and waste water treatment in Dominica. OWB is raising funds to offset the costs associated with travel for the volunteers.

Donations will be used to provide for the most urgent needs. Needs include food, water, clothing, bedding, personal hygiene products, cooking kits, solar-powered lighting, shelter repair and construction materials, power generators, and more.

Proceeds will be directed to the partner organizations based on identified needs for assistance.  Financial reports will be provided in accordance with PADF’s A133 audit and 990 reports.


Your donation will help victims of Hurricane Dorian reconstruct their lives in the wake of the disaster.
