Several churches and aid groups are working together to help the Bahamas recover from the devastation of Hurricane Dorian.

Bahamian Deputy Prime Minister Peter Turnquest says they will require hundreds of millions of dollars, if not billions, to rebuild from the catastrophic damage to both the public and private infrastructure.

He told Christian Today the mental health of those who have endured this monster storm is a priority concern of the government.

Dozens of people have been confirmed dead as a result of the hurricane.

Churches are networking to provide feeding units and to do whatever is needed.

Volunteers are on standby to help with relief and recovery efforts.

The World Food Program estimates that Grand Bahama alone will require food for more than 47,000 people.
