Waterkeeper Alliance is the largest and fastest growing nonprofit solely focused on clean water.

Hurricane Dorian Response

Hurricane Dorian made landfall on The Bahamas September 1, leaving devastation in its wake. In the coming days, the lack of water for drinking, bathing, and cooking will become more pervasive adding to stress on those already displaced.

Our Waterkeepers in the Bahamas are already taking action, delivering food, water, and the necessary supplies for residents to begin the process of rebuilding. 

However, there is much more to do, and a sustained effort is required to return to the Bahamas we once knew. Please support these efforts by visiting our donation page and selecting “Hurricane Dorian – Bahamas” from the gift designation dropdown.
