On behalf of the State of Qatar, the Qatar Fund for Development has responded urgently to the recent Hurricane Dorian disaster by supporting reconstruction projects and providing immediate support to hurricane victims.
The hurricane caused severe damage and destruction to hospitals and health centers, resulting in insufficient resources to absorb the growing number of wounded people.
At present, it is difficult to accurately quantify the damage, as access to the affected areas is challenging after roads have been closed due to debris and infrastructure destruction, causing severe difficulties in accessing the necessary supplies, Qatar Fund for Development statement said.
The State of Qatar will provide its support based on the ongoing needs assessment by the Bahamas Government.
Hurricane Dorian hit the Bahamas and caused severe damage to the islands of Abaco and Grand Bahama, leaving at least 43 deaths and more than 30,000 people affected, including the destruction of 13,000 homes in the island of Abaco alone. It is expected that the numbers of affected people by this disaster will increase in the coming days.
The State of Qatar expresses its deepest condolences to the Government and the people of the Bahamas following the horrific destruction caused by Hurricane "Dorian", and wishes a speedy recovery.
