As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.
Thank you for praying for Eight Days of Hope as we have fervently sought God's plan for us to bring aid to those who have lost so much. We are thankful that God has opened doors for us to respond to the Bahamas.
Here is our plan...
We will be providing some key resources to the families and communities affected by Hurricane Dorian. Currently, clean drinking water is a major challenge. We will be providing water filtration systems to hundreds of churches, community centers and families as this will help bridge the gap for those who do not have access to clean water. We also will be providing building materials like hurricane-resistant windows and flooring once the rebuilding starts.
We will start shipping supplies within the next week! We expect our outreach to the Bahamas to continue for months.
Eight Days of Hope is blessed to have partners that cover our overhead cost of ministry so every donation given will go straight to those in need!
Would you prayerfully consider giving toward the relief efforts? The need is huge and we need the body of Christ to rise up and be the hands and feet of Jesus. You can give on our website or through our P.O. Box. Make sure you indicate that you would like your donation to go towards the Bahamas.
May God bless you and please continue to pray for those that need the hope of Jesus during this devasting time.

“Eight Days of Hope has been a true friend to the people of South Carolina. They came to us wanting to help when we experienced the devastating floods of 2015, and they worked tirelessly to get people back in their homes. When people were unable to return to their communities following Hurricane Matthew, they were among the first groups removing debris and clearing the roads to ensure safe travel. We could not be more thankful for the compassion of Steve Tybor and the rest of the team at Eight Days of Hope, and we will always consider them to be a part of Team South Carolina.” - Governor Nikki Haley (8DOH XII)
In 2011, Eastern NC was slammed by Hurricane Irene. It left the rural county of Pamlico in near ruin. As chairperson of the Pamlico County Disaster Recovery Coalition, it was our job to seek out those needed resources. I was thankful when our paths ran across Eight Days of Hope. They were a major blessing to our communities! Their teams were knowledgeable, professional and willing to share a smile or a hug. It was indeed a blessing beyond words for Eight Days of Hope to come to Pamlico County. We will never forget them!
“Thank you for everything you did for the residents in Lafayette, LA. during Eight Days of Hope XIII. It was an honor to be among such a wonderful, giving, and caring group of people who wanted nothing but to help others. The sense of togetherness that Eight Days of Hope brought to the Lafayette area was extraordinary, and I can't thank you enough."
“We had so many amazing volunteers that came out and literally worked day and night to build my family a brand new home to replace the one we lost. The volunteers came in and built more than our home, they bolstered our faith in the strength of the body of Christ. In a world full of darkness, they blazed with the love of Christ brighter than the sun. And not just to us, but to our whole town. It's forever changed Tupelo, Ms. for the better.”
"Eight Days of Hope was a Godsend to St. John the Baptist Parish following Hurricane Isaac. Eight Days of Hope brought over 2,500 volunteers to our community. Hundreds of families benefited from their acts of kindness and assistance with more than $4.1 million of materials and labor. We are forever grateful for the huge boost they made to our recovery and the love and compassion they shared".
