Like the rest of the world, Exuma and The Bahamas are reeling from the incredible economic impact caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Our main economic driver of tourism has come to a halt for an indefinite period of time and may take years to recover. Small communities like ours are particularly vulnerable with little cushion to sustain ourselves through these tough times.
The Exuma Foundation is prepared to assist our community with your help through tax-deductible donations for U.S. and Canadian citizens. Our immediate approach is to provide assistance by working with local partners to distribute food vouchers to those with the greatest need. As the realities of the situation become more clear, we're working to develop other programs that provide basic needs assistance as well as contribute to building a more resilient community.
