The Bahamas Devastated By Hurricane Dorian, Jamaicans Claim They Are Undeserving Of Our Help

Posted by Vybz Queen on September 14, 2019 at 12:25 AM


The Bahamas was recently completely destroyed by Hurricane Dorian which penetrated the island for almost two days. Hurricane Dorian tore through the island, destroying everything in her path. The storm rampaged the Bahamas with Category 5 winds up to 185 mph (295 kph) and relentless, unyielding rains, flooding neighborhoods and destroying or severely damaging properties and infrastructures. Preliminary estimates are that nearly half the homes in Abaco and Grand Bahama, which have 70,000 residents and are known for their beautiful marinas, lush golf courses, and all-inclusive resorts have been completely destroyed. Officially the death toll is at 50, but that number is expected to rise with estimations being in the hundreds. It is reported that 1,500 people are still missing.


Numerous videos and photos of the utter and complete disaster circulated all over social media and on several news outlets. The Bahamas has since then received an outpouring of support from all over the world, including Jamaica. However, many Jamaicans seem to be quite upset with the attention that the Bahamas is getting from Jamaicans. Stating that if the shoe were on the other foot they would not be so quick to reach out to either support or help us. Persons have been stating that Jamaica has its own issues so we should not be wasting our time praying for the Bahamas.


In times like these though, when there is a natural disaster shouldn't persons focus on the situation at hand instead of thinking of past grievances. Do you think that Jamaica should or should not assist the Bahamas with relief efforts? Do you believe that they are undeserving of our prayers? Would you personally volunteer to assist?

 

It seems so many Caribbean countries hate one another. Why is this so? What is your opinion on this?

Of course they are deserving of our help. Many Jamaicans live and work there and they send back money to family that helps to build our economy. If we help them then we will be helping ourselves.

They definitely need all the help they can get however i read something recently that stated that they are asking persons to get visa to come there to help. The very same thing they were complaining of when USA told them they need visa to come there.
