Final Thursday, Alison Hill, LifeStraw’s Managing Director, boarded a tiny propellor plane headed for Freeport in The Bahamas. Squeezed in amongst packages of diapers, canned goods, and boxes of water filtration goods, Hill braced herself for the destruction on the ground. When the plane touched down, Hill and her couple of companions had been amongst the initially volunteers to land in Freeport in the wake of Hurricane Dorian.

“More than the subsequent couple of days, I worked to unload help from planes, move it to the distribution points…and determine other regions of assistance needed—like supplying a generator to the Freeport hospital who was seeing individuals in a dark developing with no electrical energy or water,” Hill mentioned. 

Her check out to Grand Bahama island was portion of LifeStraw’s ongoing contribution to Hurricane Dorian relief efforts. LifeStraw and its parent business, Vestergaard, have a 25-year-lengthy history of supplying volunteers and sources to regions impacted by organic disaster. Dorian, which killed at least 50 people and left wreckage across The Bahamas, also left drinking water contaminated across the islands. LifeStraw, alongside a handful of other outside brands, are demonstrating how the outside market can be a life-saving resource in the wake of organic disasters.

Thanks for watching!
