Abaco continues to face many struggles as we recover from Hurricane Dorian, but we are encouraged by the slow and steady progress that is being made. We are excited about the progress and the road that lies ahead and would like to share a few updates with you:
COVID 19 cases have been trending down in The Bahamas since late October.On November 18th, the seven day average of new cases reported was 13, down from a seven day average of 82 on October 21st. COVID Vaccines are becoming more readily available and as of November 19th, 34% of the population in the Bahamas were fully vaccinated. *From JHU CSSE COVID-19 Data
We love seeing our homeowners with smiles on their faces as we continue to restore homes damaged by Hurricane Dorian. We have just completed our tenth home! Home repairs include roof and structural repair, door and window replacement, plumbing and electric, mold remediation, and drywall installation.
Abaco Youth Baseball Update
Abaco Youth Baseball practices have resumed in Murphy Town and Coopers Town, and our young athletes have been scrimmaging on Saturdays. They were supported by a very enthusiastic cheering section of friends and families. This is a great example of how youth sports can help bring communities together.
Backyard Farming in Treasure Cay
Timothy Sands and Huel Moss talked about the benefits of Hydroponic and Aquaponic Farming at our first meeting of The Treasure Cay Backyard Farmers. Seeds, pots, planting mix, top soil, and fertilizer were distributed, and we learned about the types of food our backyard farmers are growing. Crops include tomatoes, greens, peppers, sugar apples, sweet potatoes, bananas, mangos, and soursop to name a few. Look for more information on our Community Aquaponic Garden coming in 2022.
