“There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.”
We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support for our Children of the Bahamas Drive. Individuals, families, church youth groups, entire offices, and an entire 7th-grade class reached out to their family and friends to collect supplies for our drive. We are so thankful for all your support.
Because of your donations, Missionary Flights International has delivered thousands of pounds of relief supplies to the areas hardest hit by Dorian.
Here are just a few pictures of the people who helped to make our drive such a success and for us to make a small difference in a child’s life that was devastated by the storm.

“When I told my students about the relief effort, and the students ran with it! They have been busy making posters, placing Amazon orders, and enlisting the help of family friends, ” said Marilyn Wilkes.
