Hurricane Dorian has hit the northwestern Bahamas as a category 5 storm, specifically the Abacos Islands and Grand Bahamas, on Sunday 1 September, and moved slowly across the islands over the following days. It is reportedly the strongest storm worldwide this year and the strongest to have ever hit the Bahamas, with 185 mph winds. After our exceptional experience in the Bahamas earlier this summer, we thought you may want to show your support.

Here are some ways to donate and help people affected by the hurricane:
At the time of writing, the storm is only starting to move away from the area, so the extent of the damage and loss of life is only starting to emerge. Our thoughts are with the people of the Bahamas, and we will seek to communicate any requests from our colleagues there if other forms of support are wanted.
