On Sunday we shared a powerful way to respond to Hurricane Dorian's devastation in the Bahamas: many churches in South Florida are working together to deploy the first emergency relief hospital in the Bahamas through Samaritan's Purse.
We collected a special offering on Sunday, but you can also give any day of the week by visiting this link.
As of Wednesday morning, the Samaritan's Purse emergency field hospital opened to provide lifesaving care to victims - their teams saw over 50 patients that morning, and doctors have already begun performing emergency surgeries. Samaritan's Purse is working closely with the local hospital, which has been able to refer all patients to the Samaritan's Purse hospital so that they can begin critical repairs to their facility.
There is Still Significant Need!
A generous donor from the National Christian Foundation of South Florida has stepped up to offer a $130,000 match for Angel Relief Funds collected through Church United (which includes anything collected this past weekend)!
Through The Angel Relief Fund, we are responding to the immediate critical needs of Bahamian people and also fueling the long term rebuilding of the Church in even the most remote islands of the Bahamas. The Bahamas will still be feeling the impact of Hurricane Dorian long after most have forgotten about the storm. Please continue to lock arms with us in prayer and consider encouraging your networks to contribute to The Angel Relief Fund to support the long-term restoration of the Bahamas.
