A group of nine employees from EY's New Providence office recently visited Andros to donate Christmas gifts to students and supplies to Lowe Sound Primary School which was among the many facilities that suffered damage from Hurricane Matthew which hit The Bahamas in October. The storm caused extensive damage to utilities, homes, schools, hotels, resorts and other businesses.
Since October, work has been steadily underway to rebuild the island's infrastructure. During that period, students from Lowe Sound had been forced to relocate to other schools while repairs were underway.
"In the wake of Hurricane Matthew the last several months have been an enormously testing period for the residents of Andros," said Michele Thompson, Bahamas country managing partner, EY.
"Local authorities, the Ministry of Tourism and other officials have done an amazing job of helping the island and its residents recover. We wanted to do our small part to ensure that the school has the resources it needs to fulfill its educational mission, while delivering some much-needed holiday cheer to the students. Over the years, we have focused our holiday charity initiatives on programs that can have a real impact on the daily lives of children and communities, and this was a great opportunity to extend our efforts to a new location that needed assistance," she said.
