This BBC article highlights some of stories of those who helped after Hurricane Dorian including six year old Jermaine Bell  who used  money he’d been saving for Disney to help feed evacuees.

Many cruise ships diverted to the Bahamas to become relief vessels after Hurricane Dorian. Celebrity Cruises and Royal Caribbean provided supplies and free transportation to evacuees and those returning home. The Equinox, of Celebrity cruise lines, interrupted their Caribbean itinerary so that their kitchen staff could serve 10,000 meals Cruise guests volunteered to plate and pack them. Here’s their story.

  1. I really like the article about the cruise line helping out. “In a disaster, you stitch together a response system,” he added. “And the response all around has been amazing.” Official channels sometimes take much time to figure out what they are willing to do and sometimes, even longer to actually do it. People need food now.
