Across the Bahamas, the storm left at least 70,000 people homeless and an estimated 13,000 homes, suffered severe damage or were completely destroyed.

Christian Life Missions is partnering with Convoy of Hope to provide disaster relief efforts. Convoy of Hope has established Churches in the area to serve as distribution centers for the needs of the community. 23 planes carrying clean water, tarps, food, Crisis Care Kits, diapers, baby formula, and even generators have already delivered resources to these Churches. There is still a huge need for resources including cleaning supplies to allow evacuees to wash their clothes and themselves.
