MAP International sends out relief supplies to the Bahamas
Brunswick-based MAP International has sent relief supplies and water filters to the area of the Bahamas that was devastated by Hurricane Dorian and was poised Thursday to help should the powerful storm make landfall along the Atlantic coast.
The non-profit Christian relief organization has sent half of the 5,000 disaster health kits earmarked for the Bahamas and 200 Sawyer water filters, MAP said in a prepared statement.
MAP is also sending disaster health kits to South Carolina and North Carolina, where Dorian is expected to have its strongest impact during its days-long march up the Atlantic Seaboard after hammering the Bahamas for days when it was at its strongest.
The disaster health kits provide basic health supplies, including toothbrushes, bandages, soap and basic first aid supplies that help protect victims from disease while preventing secondary illnesses that could be fatal, MAP said.
