A message from Papa Doug Manchester:
We are sending our thoughts and prayers to all of the families who have been affected by hurricane Dorian and to all of the Bahamian people. You are not alone and I know you will persevere through this catastrophe. I am proud that the United States of America has taken an active role in aiding and helping those devastated by the storm, but we must do more. As a concerned US citizen, I want to help the Bahamians in any way I can. I know there are many Americans who visit and vacation in the Bahamas, and want to help. There are many ways to do so. I am personally contributing my own resources to help support this effort and encouraging all US citizens to come together and support the Bahamian people.
This is a tremendous opportunity for America to forge an even stronger relationship with the Bahamians by showing our support in the greatest time of need. We need to ensure their safety and security and help them to recover, restore and rebuild. To all of the Bahamians, we love you, we support you, and we are here to help you. You are not alone. God Bless.

Update from Papa Doug:
I have been in the Bahamas since Saturday and I am proud of the United States of America for all of the help they are providing the Bahamian people. We have incredible support from our military, coast guard, first responders, and many other agencies. With the coordination of Nassau and the Islands, logistical support from volunteers, search and rescue teams, we are working together to address this tragedy. As a private citizen, I would like to thank all of you for contributing, and a special thanks to the United States of America and the Trump Administration for the aid you are providing. We will continue to work together to help the Bahamian people.
