Norwegian is proud to partner with All Hands and Hearts to rebuild communities devastated by Hurricanes Irma, Maria, and Dorian. We chose All Hands and Hearts because they not only respond to initial damage sustained from a natural disaster, but they also stay to help them recover and rebuild. Like us, they take a long view, and together, we will bring lasting hope to children, families and entire communities well into the future.
HURRICANE DORIAN RELIEF EFFORTS
At Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. we have always stood ready to help our neighbors in times of need. Our hearts are heavy following the devastation that Hurricane Dorian brought to the Bahamas so we are doing what we can to help the Bahamian people get back on their feet.
Due to the overwhelming response, we reached our goal of raising a total commitment of $2 million for All Hands and Hearts to assist with emergency response efforts across the Bahamas, including debris cleanup and removal, and the rebuilding of community infrastructure such as houses or schools. We are extremely grateful to everyone who contributed to the Hope Starts Here hurricane relief program and helped us meet our goal. We could not have met this goal without your generosity.
To address the immediate need for assistance, on September 5, Norwegian Breakaway departed Miami with hurricane relief supplies donated by Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. employees, in addition to items collected by the City of Miami, Baptist Health South Florida, the 305 Gives Back foundation, and other organizations, which were delivered to Nassau, and the company’s private island Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas. The company will continue to transport supplies to the Bahamas each week on Norwegian Sky and Norwegian Sun to support shelters in Nassau for Abaco evacuees.
We stand with the people of the Bahamas and will continue to offer our support and assistance as they recover from this unprecedented event. Although we have met our goal, you can still donate and make a difference. Hope Starts Here.
