The Walt Disney Company, led by Disney Cruise Line, has committed more than $1 million in cash and in-kind support to help relief and recovery efforts for those in The Bahamas affected by Hurricane Dorian.
Disney’s commitment includes a $1 million donation to non-profit relief agencies that will be undertaking recovery and rebuilding efforts, as well as the provision of supplies – including food staples and basic construction materials – to those in impacted areas.
Last week, the Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy dropped off food and water at Castaway Cay for distribution in Sandy Point on Great Abaco Island, which was heavily impacted by Hurricane Dorian and is home to many of their Crew Members. Both ships are scheduled to make additional deliveries in the coming weeks, along with many other cruise lines.
They shared this video showing some of their relief efforts to those affected by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas
Our efforts in The Bahamas continue. Our Crew have transported many pallets of water and other necessities to Abaco and supplies are headed to Grand Bahama, too. We continue to work with The Bahamas to meet immediate relief needs, in addition to our $1 million donation. pic.twitter.com/AytYGpLiIl
