Bahamas: Dorian survivors among hundreds of food assistance seekers

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Retired teacher Leroy Thompson, 63, a Hurricane Dorian survivor from Abaco who lost his home, held up a $50 voucher he received from the southeast food distribution center on Joe Farrington Road this morning, expressing the funds will help him supplement groceries.

The former Forest Drive, Dundas Town, resident has rented in New Providence with his family since the storm last September.

His son, an air traffic controller in Abaco, who was transferred to New Providence, supplements income for the household of five.

Thompson, 63, was one of over 500 Bahamians in eastern and southern New Providence who sought food assistance yesterday, waiting for hours in some cases to receive a food voucher in order to stock up on essential supplies.
