It was shared that the Sandals Foundation would for the next 30 days take all of its incoming hurricane donation funds and give them to The Bahamas to assist in the restoration of the affected islands and cays. Hurricane Joaquin served a devastating blow to the country and Bahamas Prime Minister, Perry Christie has announced that it will take $60 million dollars to resuscitate islands including Acklins, Long Cay, Crooked Island, Mayaguana, Long Island, Rum Cay and Ragged Island. That figure has been met with some backlash in the public.
