Israeli humanitarian aid agency IsraAID is  sending emergency support to the Bahamas in the wake of hurricane Dorian.

While the full scale of Dorian’s devastation is still unclear, at least 20 people are reported killed and as many as 13,000 homes damaged or destroyed on Abaco and Grand Bahama islands.

IsraAID’s emergency response team will distribute urgent relief supplies, offer psychological first aid, and deploy water filters to restore access to drinking water, while conducting further needs assessments in affected communities.

Reporter Mark Weiss spoke with Israid co- chief executive officer Yoram Polizer.
