The Bahamas has the second highest per capita GDP in the English-speaking Caribbean with an economy heavily dependent on tourism and financial services. Tourism accounts for approximately 50% of GDP and directly or indirectly employs half of the archipelago’s labor force.
Food For The Poor helped the Bahamas in 2019, after the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Dorian. The storm was the most intense hurricane on record to strike the Bahamas, with winds in the Category 5 storm peaking at 185 mph. The massive storm stalled before making its first landfall on the Abaco Islands on Sept.1, followed by a second landfall on Grand Bahama Island on Sept. 2.
