The Caribbean American Cultural Arts Foundation Hurricane Relief Reception Raises $2500
Donation in Collaboration with the Atlanta International Night Market & the Caribbean Association of Georgia to Help the Grand Bahama Children's Home
By: Caribbean American Cultural Arts Foundation
"We are excited to be a part of the rebuilding effort in Grand Bahama. This is just the beginning of strategic steps that we are taking to make a difference within the island chains following Dorian," said Caribbean American Cultural Arts Chairman, Michael Thomas. Established in 1977, The Grand Bahama Children's Home meets the daily needs of up to 40 orphaned children. The children are taken into the facility because they have either been abused, abandoned or neglected. Some of the children who are now in the care of the facility lost their parents during Hurricane Dorian. The Grand Bahama Children's Home provides food, education and housing to the children. Jeffrey Kuo, CEO of the International Night Market attended the event to support Hurricane relief efforts. According to Kuo, the Atlanta International Night Market made a commitment to help those impacted by the storm, "Actually, at our Night Market event, we had a day to raise money for Bahamian relief, so we are here to continue that mission." The Atlanta International Night Market Board supported a Taste of the Caribbean Day event and some of the proceeds went toward the Bahamas recovery effort. Caribbean Association of Georgia President, Chris Scott said, "We are one community and this donation is a reflection of our desire to stand with the people of The Bahamas."
Work continues at the Grand Bahama Children's Home; facility leaders now say their goal is to get children who have been displaced back in their newly renovated building by Christmas. To support the work of the Grand Bahama Children's Home visit www.caribbeanculturalarts.org.
