THE PLAN

Hurricane Dorian hit Abaco on Sunday, September 1st and lingered for more than 24 hours, devastating the islands while injuring and killing many people. On Monday, September 2nd, a group of concerned Central Florida residents, all with connections to the islands, met to devise a plan on how we could best pool our resources to save as many people as possible. 

TAKING ACTION

We spent the next two weeks flying airplanes and helicopters in and out of Abaco, evacuating as many people as possible, many of whom were in need of immediate medical help. On the return flights, we delivered food, water, and medical supplies. We have run over 50 flights so far and as a result the out islands have been fairly well supplied.

CLEAN WATER

We teamed up with Water Mission International to provide a helicopter to assist in the installation of a 30,000-gallon per day Clean Water machine and transported generators and smaller Clean Water machines to other areas.

TEAMWORK

We have also provided air transport for the Samaritan’s Purse field team, Global Dirt in order to set up satellite internet services, www.fuelrelieffund.org, and a team of mental health professionals from Orlando to assist the evacuees.

MOVING FORWARD

Of course, there is still a lot of work ahead. Our immediate goals include:

  • Structural inspections of buildings
  • Construction / Restoration of resident homes, fire houses, police stations, community centers, churches, grocery stores, and docks
  • Strategic flights for medicine & volunteers
  • Spiritual and post traumatic assistance

YOUR SUPPORT

We have incurred a tremendous amount of expense fueling the airplanes, boats, and helicopters that made our mission happen and have many more miles to go.

100% of all donations will go directly to our effort.
