COVID19 Response from Lyford Cay Foundations
17 April 2020
Lyford Cay Foundations is deeply concerned about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the world, particularly on The Bahamas.
To this end, we have pledged $200,000 in immediate aid for vulnerable communities affected by the COVID-19 lockdown and have disbursed $50,000 to date to the Salvation Army and Bahamas Feeding Network.
While the global community shudders from this pandemic, The Bahamas is profoundly vulnerable given that it is still reeling from the physical, humanitarian and economic impact of Hurricane Dorian in September 2019, and given the dependency of our economy on tourism.
And as with Hurricane Dorian, navigating the impact of COVID-19 on The Bahamas will be complex, and a long-term process; This circumstance is unprecedented, and the needs are immense. However, with the support of our caring community of donors and working with community partners, we know we can work together to help those who are most in need.
We welcome and encourage contributions to Lyford Cay Foundations in support of our ongoing work to help Bahamians realize their full potential, and have included below, the ways available to give, with preference for online giving and wire transfers at this time.
