The Rotary Clubs in Grand Bahama hosted its second building materials mass distribution on Friday, January 24, at the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA). Area Governor for Rotary District 6990 in Grand Bahama Lisbeth Knowles spoke about the organization’s latest post-Dorian relief effort, during an interview on Tuesday, January 28.

Knowles said that Rotary has been gutting and conducting mould remediation efforts on homes in Hudson Estates and Regency Park. She added that when the initiative began, Rotarians would distribute building material door-to-door. “But it’s pretty tedious and it takes a while, therefore, we decided to do mass distributions instead.”

The organization hosted a distribution exercise just before Christmas 2019 for residents in Hudson Estates; however, the most recent distribution was even bigger with about 3,000 sheetrock and more donated to those in need.
