Hurricane Dorian Relief Update

International Deployment

150 Family Survival Tents for Evacuees: Disaster Aid USA (DAUSA) has been tasked with providing 150 family survival tents for two evacuee centers in Nassau, Bahamas. Our Disaster Aid Response Team (DART) members will be training local volunteers on proper setup of tents and input on the design of the center. The location is two Boy Scout camps. We need YOUR help! Adopt a tent and provide a family with shelter with bedroll and hygiene kits for $500. Water filtration units are being distributed currently. Help us reach our goal so we may help those survivors who have been displaced from their homes!
