Tiger Woods has teamed up to help raise capital.
Grammy award-winning singer and the winner are in support of restoration efforts and the Hurricane Dorian aid, one of the founders of the ONE Bahamas Fund.
Winds of 175 mph flattened homes when the category five storm struck on the islands in the Caribbean almost two weeks 26, killing 50 people. An estimated 2,500 people are still lacking, and tens of thousands are homeless.
“It is horrifying to find the videos and listen to the stories about the ramifications of Hurricane Dorian,” said Woods.
“We’re fitting each donation dollar for dollar so if someone gives $100, we will match it and from that one pledge, we increase $200. Together we [the foundation partners] have pledged $6m (#4.8m).
“Our expectation is that others may join us in the effort so we can actually raise $12m (Number 9.7m) or longer. The requirement in the Bahamas is very real.”
A fifth of the Bahamas population has been left homeless and nearly all of the public infrastructure in Grand Bahama and Abaco Islands was ruined.
“The pictures coming out of The Bahamas are catastrophic,” said Timberlake.
“We know people everywhere need to help, and we expect during the ONE Bahamas Fund, we’re enabling the broadest group of individuals to get involved and support the restoration and rebuilding efforts essential to get almost 70,000 people back to their feet”
