Emergency fund launched for Hurricane Matthew Bahamas relief


epnewshurricanematthewreliefIn response to devastation caused by Hurricane Matthew across the Bahamas, the EPC has launched an emergency relief fund to help with recovery efforts. Matthew hammered the Bahamas October 5-6 as a category 3 and 4 hurricane. Donations to the fund will be sent to EPC churches ministering to those affected by the storm.

The EPC has three churches in the Bahamas: St. Andrews Presbyterian Kirk in Nassau, Lucaya Presbyterian Church in Freeport, and Kirk of the Pines in Abaco. Bryn MacPhail, Pastor of St. Andrews, noted that Nassau and Freeport suffered significant damage from the storm.

“Poverty-stricken areas of Nassau and Freeport were especially hard-hit,” he said. “Any financial support would be applied to our mission to the impoverished community just to the south of us, where partial roof collapses were quite common. Thank you for your prayers and support.”
