Donors, Churches, and Skilled Volunteers Needed to Help Rebuild The Bahamas
World Hope Seeking Volunteers
About the Mission
World Hope International is seeking volunteers with construction and skilled trades to help rebuild areas destroyed by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas. We are also looking for donors and churches that are willing to adopt and sponsor the costs to reconstruct two churches and a parsonage in Freeport.
Since the start of our response back in early September, World Hope International has been sending in teams to help produce freshwater and distribute supplies to the local communities. Municipal water systems have been or are being restored.
Now, we are in the midst of discussions with local churches and communities to plan the best way forward to bring back stable communities and livelihoods. It will take years to rebuild, and World Hope International will be a part of that long journey with The Bahamians. We invite you to join us. We are looking for people who can lift 50+ pounds, who have mechanical/electrical knowledge, and skilled trades. We are also looking for donors and church sponsors to support the costs to rebuild two churches and a parsonage in Freeport.
How to Volunteer
If you are interested in going to the Bahamas starting in February 2020. We are estimating a week or 10-day commitment for each team of 8 people. Each person will be responsible for their own costs ($2000-2200) for the 10 day trip including airfare.
