Bahamas: Sweetings Cay Home Project receives $250,000 donation for Dorian survivors

SWEETINGS CAY, GRAND BAHAMA — The Lyford Cay Club Charitable Trust joined the Rotary Grand Bahama Disaster Relief Committee and the TK Foundation to expand the Sweetings Cay Home Project that will rebuild homes and reunite displaced families in Sweetings Cay, Grand Bahama.

Lyford Cay Club Charitable Trust Director Katherine Elza said: “We are offering $250,000 and challenging our network to match that amount and go beyond.

“Most of Sweetings Cay was rendered uninhabitable after Hurricane Dorian, and 14 months later, many of the families are still living in tents or the rubble of their condemned homes. This is a remote community that we cannot forget.

“Rotary is a reputable partner, and we are joining them and the TK Foundation to expand the reach of the project in the community. Our donation will immediately allow Rotary to build additional homes.”
