ALL HANDS AND HEARTS
Hurricane Laura (Aug 2020)
Update From Gina Deave, Director of Corporate Relations (Sept 2020):
"Our team is on the ground, building a work queue of high priority cases and beginning work in Jasper County and Newton County in Texas, as well as Beauregard Parish and Calcasieu Parish in Louisiana. There are numerous major events and national crises transpiring across the United States, and the news of Hurricane Laura faded into the background. Despite the fact that Hurricane Laura was one of the most powerful storms in modern U.S. history, little media coverage has led to little support for the affected communities. AHAH will stay to assist through the long-term recovery (up to two years) if we can secure funding to do so.
Positive Legacy's generous support after Hurricane Dorian last year has been so impactful and means a lot to us. We welcome your continued support as we safely resume our global disaster relief services after our six-month suspension of volunteer-powered operations due to COVID-19."
Hurricane Dorian Has Passed & Our Work Has Begun (Aug/Sept 2019):
In response to Hurricane Dorian and Positive Legacy visited the Bahamas on Jam Cruise 18, and we worked hard to provide a little HOPE to the communities that were devastated by this hurricane. Although we don’t hear much about the ongoing recovery process in the news these days, the need is still great in the communities that were devastated by the storms. We are proud to partner with Cloud 9 Adventures and All Hands and Hearts to help the locals rebuild. HOPE STARTS HERE!
Through volunteer and community engagement, All Hands and Hearts aim to help families recover faster after natural disasters using their “smart response” strategy – by rebuilding in a disaster resilient way they prepare them for future events and, through the process, strengthen both volunteers and communities.
With efforts in the US Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands, volunteers have worked tirelessly alongside the communities to clear debris, muck and gut and repair schools, day care facilities, pre-schools and homes to help them on the road to recovery.
