Remarks

On the government side, as the world’s single-largest humanitarian donor, the United States Government has responded to the request for assistance from the Bahamian Government and has been providing life-saving assistance to address acute humanitarian needs. On Sunday, I myself visited Abaco and met with the USAID Disaster Assistance Response Team – or DART, as we call it – which is leading our government’s humanitarian response in the Bahamas. There are now more than 100 members of that DART on the ground in the Bahamas. This team on the ground is providing urgently needed aid, including basic food, shelter, and health support. USAID is working across the interagency, including with Health and Human Services, and the U.S. Northern Command and U.S. Coast Guard for logistical support and to augment search-and-rescue operations.

Remarks

So, the U.S. Government is already donated 2.8 million dollars in humanitarian assistance. We recognize that's a down payment on the need. But again, this is something that has the attention of the highest levels of the U.S. Government, and we're here to help. With that, we'd be happy to take a few questions.

Setembru 9, 2019
Remarks

USAID is leading the humanitarian relief efforts of the U.S. Government, including lifesaving and life sustaining assistance. Food, water and sanitation, emergency shelter, and medical care needed to facilitate The Bahamian government's response as well as communications, electricity, transportation, and air traffic control support. Most importantly, we are working closely with the Prime Minister and his leadership as he leads the response. Our job is to help him in his efforts to provide relief and to help recovery. We have had important, good meetings with the Prime Minister. I was impressed with his great pledge of assistance in working with us and he's made it clear that if we can identify any barriers, any logjams, any bureaucracy, he stands ready to clear that, and that's of course vitally important.

Setembru 9, 2019
Remarks

This was a particularly cruel storm because a lot of the former structures that were perhaps not that strong to begin with - they're gone. Those structures are absolutely wiped out. So, it is a particularly cruel storm. Lots of suffering, intense devastation. I'm proud of the fact that the American people are standing with the people of The Bahamas, that the U.S. Government is standing with the Government of The Bahamas to help them.
