Christians Respond After ‘Catastrophe of Historic Proportions’ in the Bahamas

Christians are on the ground in the Bahamas offering spiritual counselling and practical assistance after Dorian left a trail of destruction, Christian Today reported.

Swathes of the islands have been left in ruins after the hurricane swept through with winds of up to 185 mph. At least 43 people were killed and around 70,000 people are homeless.

Samaritan’s Purse has airlifted an emergency field hospital and medical team to the Bahamas at the request of the World Health Organization and the Bahamas government.

The mobile facility has 40 beds but can support the care of up to 100 patients daily, and houses an operating room as well as obstetrics ward with delivery room.

The humanitarian organisation, led by Franklin Graham, said that the people of the Bahamas had been left in “desperate straits” after Dorian.

Since the category 5 storm made landfall a week ago, Samaritan’s Purse has dispatched 30 tons of emergency items, including material for temporary shelter and water filtration units.
