SINT MAARTEN/BAHAMAS - K1 DIRECT, K1 Britannia Foundation’s Disaster Relief & Crisis, is currently deploying a team of trained volunteer members to assist with relief and aid in the Bahamas.

Due to devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian, disaster relief efforts have commenced and K1 DIRECT will be on ground to provide assistance to the Bahamian community. K1 DIRECT has been diligently training in various fields of disaster management to assist the disaster relief structure of St. Maarten and other islands through shelter management, first response, distribution management and more within the region.

K1 DIRECT is a team of trained volunteers in which different members are certified as Emergency Medical Responders, and trained in CPR/AED, First Aid, and Psychosocial Support, and End-to-End Supply Chain Management. DIRECT members work across the fields of medical response, humanitarian relief, data collection, and others. The team will be going to the Bahamas to provide a service of their expertise, and will be on the ground to collaborate with other organizations and initiatives, and fill in where most needed.

Members of both the St. Maarten and Curacao team, are currently making preparations to depart, are completely insured under the foundation, and have received all necessary supplies to ensure the team and its resources capacity can be mobilized during a disaster.

K1 DIRECT is currently not taking supplies due to the logistical issue of transporting goods at this moment. However, the team urges whoever in the community wants to assist to either make a monetary donation on our website or get in contact as help is needed in other forms as well.

K1 DIRECT also is kindly inviting the community of St. Maarten to support the team by purchasing a raffle ticket; funds generated through the raffle will go towards the disaster operational budget. The disaster operational budget will be used to cover any costs of operation and activation of the team which includes buying fuel, emergency medical expenses, materials, and transportation costs.
