In continuing its commitment to assisting communities impacted by Hurricane Dorian, Doctors Hospital Health System has partnered with Rotary Bahamas Disaster Relief to donate $5,000 to Life Way Academy in Abaco through the Doctors Hospital Meyer Rassin Foundation (DHMRF).
More than two years have passed since Hurricane Dorian rocked Abaco and Grand Bahama leaving massive devastation in its wake. In the aftermath of the storm, DHHS made a commitment to provide assistance to those affected. These efforts have included job opportunities, donations of food, clothing, and other much needed supplies.
In keeping with the Health System’s focus on education, the next step in giving back became obvious says DHHS Board Member Mrs. Elma Garraway.
“As a part of our community engagement, we find it most impactful to sow seeds in the area of education. The opportunity to assist students and families impacted by Hurricane Dorian was a no-brainer for us.”
“We find great joy in giving back to our community, particularly in ways that empower our youth and the next generation of learners and leaders,” added DHHS President and CEO Dr. Charles Diggiss. “Education is such a critical component of the development of a community and country, so we hope to see a number of leaders growing out of this seed we are planting.”
Life Way Academy is a school offering classes from K3 to Grade 8 on the island of Abaco. The donation by DHHS will assist in completing some much needed infrastructural work for the institution.
