Delivering aid to the Bahamas

RLC soldiers have been delivering food, water and vital supplies to the Bahamas in the wake of Hurricane Dorian.

Ptes Iddles and Eastlake from 266 Port Squadron are currently onboard RFA Mounts Bay working alongside the relief team which also includes personnel from 17 Port & Maritime Regiment.

RFA Mounts Bay has distributed Department for International Development (DFID) relief items, including vital aid and specialist equipment, such as all-terrain quads, dump trucks, diggers and stores. It also stores DFID water carriers, hygiene kits including basic items such as soap and shelter kits.

In addition, the team has deployed a rigid-hulled inflatable boat with a dedicated Humanitarian and Disaster Relief team to join up with the Royal Bahamas Defence Force and unload vital aid to those who have been worst hit by the strongest storm ever recorded in The Bahamas.

The highly skilled crew of RFA Mounts Bay have been on call since Jun to support our overseas territories and friends in the hurricane season.

A/LCPL Kwarteng and A/LCPL Kwame-Tanoh of 64 Squadron, 6 Regiment RLC, who have been attached to BATUK for the past four weeks, have paid a visit to the Hope & Home Orphanage in Nanyuki, Kenya where they made food donations to the Charity.

The two soldiers decided to raise funds from friends and family in the UK via Facebook, raising a total of £150 (KSH 22,000.00) which was used to purchase much needed supplies for the orphans.
