As you know, Hurricane Dorian struck the Bahamas this weekend as a Category 5 storm, the strongest ever to hit the islands, and stayed put for three days. Thousands of cars, homes and power lines have been torn down, flooded and wiped away and the islands continue to experience heavy flooding. At least seven deaths have been confirmed and the number is expected to grow.
The Clara Lionel Foundation, founded by Rihanna, is one of the charities on the Goodnation platform taking immediate action. They're assessing the need and working closely with partners on the ground who are providing meals, medical care, medical supplies, clean water and more to the victims of Hurricane Dorian.
Other charities on the Goodnation platform that are providing relief to victims include IOCC, Afya Foundation and Waterkeeper Alliance.
