Disney Donates Over a Million Dollars for Relief Efforts in the Bahamas

Disney Donates Over a Million Dollars for Relief Efforts in the Bahamas”

Royal Caribbean and Disney cruise lines each have pledged to donate $1 million to relief efforts for the Bahamas.

"The Walt Disney Company stands with the people of The Bahamas affected by Hurricane Dorian", said Robert A. Iger, chairman and CEO of the Walt Disney Company.

The donations will go to relief agencies who will not only begin the recovery and rebuilding efforts, but also provide immediate supplies like food and basic construction materials to impacted areas. While Disney Cruise Lines's private island Castaway Cay was safe, many places experienced devastating destruction because of the hurricane. The Category 5 hurricane hovered over nearby Grand Bahama and the Abaco islands for two days, pummeling them with 165 miles per hour winds and creating storm surges as high as 23 feet. "As the needs in these communities are assessed, we are prepared to aid the relief and recovery efforts through funding, the provision of supplies and by providing support to our Bahamian Crew Members".

"Residents should remain in shelter on Grand Bahama Island as they are now experiencing the southern eyewall of Dorian".

Royal Caribbean International evacuated 400 staff members from its island, CocoCay, on August 28 to a Nassau hotel or to their homes, according to a spokesperson.

A statement from Royal Caribbean said the company is partnering with the Bahamian government and the Pan American Development Foundation and other local nonprofits to make sure their donations do the most good.

"As we continue to monitor Hurricane Dorian's path, the safety of our guests, staff, and animals is our greatest priority", the park posted on Instagram. Our thoughts & support are with them during this hard time. Our focus will be on the priorities established by the government and emergency relief officials.
