PLP donates $50K to NEMA

A week after a devastating category four hurricane overturned islands in the South and Central Bahamas, the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) has donated $50,000 to assist with hurricane relief efforts.

On Thursday, PLP Chairman Bradley Roberts made the donation to the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

He said The Bahamas has always taken great pride in being a Christian nation and has never been shy about expressing the fact that “we are our brothers’ and sisters’ keeper” and with this in mind, the party decided to do its part.

“In a spirit of charity, goodwill and in tribute to that courageous and indomitable spirit that defines the Bahamian people, I present NEMA with a check in the amount of $50,000 to assist with the ongoing relief efforts,” Mr. Roberts said.

Noting that Hurricane Joaquin is not the first hurricane to create a stumbling block to the country’s national development, Mr. Roberts said every time the country is knocked down it emerges stronger and better and this time will be no different.

“We as a nation will emerge from this trial with a much stronger national resolve and with greater compassion,” he said.

“We will be better overall. Additionally, I take this opportunity to thank all those who have actively participated in this impressive national relief effort and make another clarion appeal to those who have not yet joined this movement of love and sharing, to please become a part of this national relief and rebuilding effort on behalf of our affected brothers and sisters in the central and southern Bahamas during their time of trial, difficulty and great need. It is the right thing to do.”
