Dorian has wreaked havoc in the Bahamas. Following the devastating passage of the hurricane on this Caribbean archipelago, appeals for donations have multiplied to help the affected populations.

Miami has escaped the worst of the hurricane, but is mobilizing for its neighbors, through several associations that organize collections of basic necessities. Bottles of water, tins or baby diapers can be deposited in about fifteen collection points in the city. In Miami Beach, firefighters appeal to the generosity of the citizens. The four barracks in the city opened their doors to collect non-perishable food.

The Bahamas Red Cross Division also called for solidarity to help children and families who lost everything as a result of the hurricane.

Hurricane Dorian, which fell on Sunday 1 September on the Abaco Islands, the second largest territory of the Bahamas archipelago, before continuing its trajectory to Grand Bahama, caused considerable damage. He reportedly killed 7 people and injured dozens and destroyed more than 13,000 homes. A provisional balance sheet that could still increase according to the Bahamian authorities.

Currently, Dorian, downgraded to a Category 2 hurricane, continues its route along the East Coast of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.
