Sandals helping out in Bahamas

Sandals helping out in Bahamas

The Sandals Foundation has sounded the call for support in its efforts to help citizens of the Bahamas, who have been affected by Hurricane Joaquin.

These include the southern islands of San Salvador, Cat Island and Rum Cay which were most affected by the Category 4 storm, as well as Long Island which has also seen its fair share of destruction. The Bahamas Relief Campaign has seen many donations so far, which include both cash and in-kind support for the recovery team. Monetary donations are being managed through the Foundation’s online portal at and are also being accepted onsite at all Sandals Resorts, Beaches Resorts and Grand Pineapple Beach Resorts.

Hurricane Joaquin made landfall in the Bahamas on Oct. 3 and left a path of destruction in its wake. Several people have been confirmed dead while many others have been reported missing. Recently, the Foundation conducted a similar fundraising campaign for the island nation of Dominica which was devastated by Tropical Storm Erika.
