STORYLINE
UNICEF announced the arrival to Nassau of a plane carrying nearly 1.5 tons of lifesaving supplies that will help provide access to safe water for over 9,500 children and families left reeling by the storm.

This first supply shipment of UNICEF humanitarian items was freighted by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and includes over 400,000 water purification tablets, several 5,000-liters tanks for at least 2,000 people, and 1,000 jerry cans, with plans for these supplies to be distributed to the affected communities in the coming days.

An estimated 18,000 children in the Abaco and Grand Bahama areas of the Bahamas have been exposed to the impact by Hurricane Dorian, with many in urgent need of humanitarian assistance, UNICEF said, citing initial figures from the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency.

Last Friday, UNICEF in the Bahamas was able to access Abaco, the area hardest hit by Hurricane Dorian. The team on the ground witnessed widespread devastation and destruction. In and around Marsh Harbor, schools and hospitals are flattened; houses and roads have collapsed; and cars and boats are hanging in trees.

Aerial reconnaissance and preliminary assessments indicate flooding may have compromised water and sanitation systems in Abaco and areas of Grand Bahama. The lack of safe water and adequate sanitation puts children and families at risk of contracting waterborne diseases.

UNICEF is working with the Government to kickstart the distribution of lifesaving supplies to families as quickly as possible, in collaboration with UN agencies and other humanitarian partners.
