Bahamas Volunteers

Donors, Churches, and Skilled Volunteers Needed to Help Rebuild The Bahamas

About the Mission

Hurricane Dorian ripped through the Bahamas on September 1, 2019, and altered the lives of thousands. World Hope International (WHI) was one of the first organizations on the ground and, working through over 60 amazing volunteers, provided clean drinking water for 90 days. 

We are now returning to rebuild two Wesleyan Churches around Freeport, Grand Bahama, and homes in their surrounding communities. Not only will we be helping restore homes in some of the most underserved communities on the island, but we will be doing so in a manner that helps spread healing into those communities’ lives. 

We are looking for 15 church teams to join us from January-April 2020. Each team will have 8-10 members.  Team members should be experienced in construction or able to jump in and help with construction tasks.  Each team member needs to be physically able to work for 5-days straight and lift at least 50 lbs.

How to Volunteer

If your church or other group is interested in this opportunity, please have a notional team leader complete an application using this Managed Missions link. Select T2005B Rebuilding after Hurricane Dorian.  Contact Susan Park, Short-term team trip logistics coordinator (email: susanpark@worldhope.org) if you have any questions.

Partner churches who are unable to send teams are encouraged to raise project funds to support overall reconstruction activities.  Understandably, reconstruction work in this environment is not without cost challenges. For donations in the US please contact Dan Irvine: DanIrvine@WorldHope.org. For Canadian groups please contact Heather Bandy: Heather.Bandy@WorldHope.org.

Volunteers drop everything and respond to Hurricane Laura

On Friday, August 28th, Kurt Bandy received a phone call from World Hope International (Canada) asking if he could leave that evening for Louisiana to respond to Hurricane Laura’s devastation. He had one hour to make the decision. Knowing on top of the 7 days of service, he had to self-isolate for 14 days coming home, Kurt dropped everything. By 8:00 pm, Kurt departed for his first disaster relief trip…

The Power of Partnerships: Why We Are Better Together

World Hope International has a long history of partnering with other organizations. When it comes to emergency relief work there is a need for organizations to come together in order to make a greater impact.

Celebrating the Passionate Purpose

World Hope’s first-ever Online Gala could not have gone any better. Our community stepped up and we all experienced 37 feel-good minutes of good news.

Making Things New

When other organizations were shutting down and pushing pause on current work, World Hope did not close. We did the opposite. Our doors remained open and our staff pivoted in strategy to find a way to address COVID.

Volunteers Responding to Disaster

I recently interviewed Jimmy Penney about his experience as an emergency response volunteer for World Hope International (Canada). Read about why he has joined Canada's emergency response team! Tanya: Jimmy tell me a bit about yourself? What is a normal day/week for...

AN ORGANIZATION YOU CAN TRUST.

Spending of World Hope International (Canada) funds is confined to Board approved projects. Funds designated towards a project are used as designated, with the understanding that when the need for that project has been met or cannot be completed for reasons determined by the Board, the remaining funds designated will be used where needed most.
