Hurricane Joaquin – Southeastern Bahamas 2015
Restoring Hope in Crooked Island
The Bahamas Hurricane Restoration Fund is pleased to announce that due to very generous donations from a number of patrons, we were able to achieve the restoration of the ACL Hall in Crooked Island to the standards required to withstand hurricane-force wind and rain. The ACL Hall is the most central community building to the Crooked Island community. It serves many purposes and is regularly used for community gatherings, charity events, cultural festivals, weddings and children’s schooling and church services when schools and churches are not available.
The ACL serves as a symbol of hope and catalyst for healing during the holiday season. In addition to providing the central meeting space for the community, it is also used for temporary housing to accommodate construction crews while they work on restoration projects throughout Crooked Island. Rebuilt to withstand the violence of future storms, the ACL Hall can also serve as a hurricane shelter. Additionally, it incorporates environmentally sound practices such as solar power and reverse osmosis for clean drinking water.
If you or someone you know has a project that is in need of funding, please contact us.
