Limitless Gives Back
Hurricane Dorian reached the Bahamas as a Category 5 hurricane. The storm completely encompassed the islands and stayed camped overhead for 41 hours. The impact of this slow-moving storm was devastating. With excess winds of 200 miles per hour, houses were destroyed and left businesses ripped apart.
In addition to the devastating winds, the storm caused nearly two feet of rain to flood the island. This amount of rain inundated and structurally damaged a huge percent of the Bahamas infrastructure.
Weeks after the hurricane has passed, thirteen hundred Bahama natives are still not accounted. Currently, the death toll sits at 52, but rescue groups are still suffering logistical challenges simply entering impacted zones on the island, let alone clearing the wreckage and finding victims. In addition to challenging relief scenarios, the Bahamas will also suffer from long term health challenges such as: water contamination, mold, and risk of infection.
Here at Limitless Technology we understand the impact of a major storm. Based in Lake Mary Florida, we too were expecting a large impact form Dorian. Thankfully, Florida was fortunate enough to experience a lesser impact than expected. However, events like this remind us that devastating weather patterns can have major impact on families and businesses. Here at Limitless we know that when you have an opportunity to help a community in need, you must (as individuals or as an organization) do what is necessary to help.
September 15th, 2019 executive and employees of Limitless Technology banded together to provide supplies to those in need to the Bahamas. Bottled water, canned goods, and other non-perishable supplies were collected to provide to those in need.
Although Limitless has begun its effort to assisting the island, a sustained effort will need to be given to assist the island with the long-term impacts of this storm. Below is a list of needed items given by the Bahamian Government:
- *Bottled water
- *Food for personal consumption
- *Personal hygiene products
- Medicine and medical supplies
- Building materials
- Tents & Cots
- Bedding materials
- Mosquito nettings
- Electrical and plumbing fixtures and materials
- Household furniture, furnishings and appliance
Please review these items and consider partnering with a trusted organization to assist in the relief efforts. Your kindness will greatly impact the lives of those currently struggling to rebuild their lives.
