September 3, 2019 (Washington, D.C.) – The Pan American Development Foundation (PADF) is launching a campaign to benefit families in the Bahamas who were affected by Hurricane Dorian. All contributions made will support the recovery and reconstruction of affected communities in the Bahamas.
PADF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, affiliated with the Organization of American States (OAS).

“Everyone can lend a hand in this time of need,” said Katie Taylor, Executive Director at PADF. “We must stand in solidarity with hurricane victims and their families. Families must acquire means to recover their normal lives and build back what was lost in the tragic disaster.”
PADF is currently only accepting financial donations to support the rapid delivery of needed goods to those in greatest need.
