A Message From Our President
Welcome to the National Association of The Bahamas (NAB), a 501(c) non-profit organization. We are supported by voluntary partnership of Bahamians and friends of The Bahamas living in South Florida and working to better the communities in our nation. We have been in existence since 1993.
Today, Sunday September 1, as Hurricane Dorian, a category 5 storm barrels across the Northern Bahamas, we are witnessing the devastation of portions of the area including The Abacos and Grand Bahama Island that are now experiencing the effects of 180 mile per hour winds.
We would like to extend an urgent appeal to the public to lend support to the many people across The Bahamas who have been affected or will be affected as the storm crosses our northern Islands today, Sunday September 1 through Monday September 2.
Many of the victims of this traumatic experience will suffer major losses, which we will not be able to replace, but we can meet some of their immediate needs as they try to recover from this tragic force of nature.
Thanking you in advance for your support.
