Errol Thurston Bahamas Hurricane Relief Fund

$126,828 of $500,000 goal

Raised by 675 people in 19 days
Abaco, Bahamas is devastated from Hurricane Dorian, a Category 5 direct hit to Abaco.   My name is Mercedes Thurston and I am creating this page on behalf of my husband Errol Thurston who is a proud Bahamian and owner of Errol Thurston Bahamas, a fishing guide service in Abaco.  He was born and raised in Abaco and I’ve been blessed to call Abaco my second home for many years now.  We’ve set up this GoFundMe Page to help the people of Abaco during their greatest time of need.  Hurricane Dorian demolished this island; it’s the worst I ever seen.  Bahamians are strong and the people of Abaco are even stronger.  We will keep praying and rebuild from the ground up.  Your donations wIll help us purchase the supplies these families are in desperate need of at the moment for basic survival, such as water, food, toiletries, medical items, etc.  We are also collecting and purchasing items that are needed for cleanup purposes and to begin rebuilding Abaco.  We have several volunteers donating boats, planes, and fuel to help transport items over once it is safe to travel.  This is an opportunity for us all to join together and help our neighbors rebuild their lives  Thank you in advance for your help.  Every little bit makes a huge difference!  If you have specific questions you can always reach out to us at errolthurstonbahamas@gmail.com.  
Thank you!
Errol & Mercedes

We are so thankful for your donations! Please know that every single penny of this money will go to helping our neighbors in the Bahamas. Abaco and Grand Bahama are in a catastrophic state. Our first priority is to get water, food, and shelter to our Bahamian neighbors. Our phones continue to ring off the hook and emails keep coming in from people offering their help or ideas. These islands will literally need to be built from the ground up. One thing I know for sure, Bahamians do not crumble under pressure. They rise from the ashes like a phoenix ready to start again. We love all of you and are so grateful for your kindness and generosity. We will keep you posted! God Bless!
