As United's humanitarian Flight 2814 from IAH to the Bahamas departed for the islands on September 17, a little over two weeks after Hurricane Dorian struck the islands with the fury of a record-breaking Category 5 storm, the reality was stark. More than 1,300 people are still missing. Rebuilding in the Bahamas will take years. And the need for help remains urgent, with thousands of evacuees overflowing shelters and infrastructure on Grand Bahama and the Abaco Islands largely destroyed.
As victims in the Bahamas continue to feel the devastation of #HurricaneDorian, the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation is committed to supporting disaster relief partners, Americares, Direct Relief International and American Red Cross, with a donation to provide needed supplies and medical care to the impacted communities to help alleviate the suffering. Our thoughts are with those affected by the storm and we urge everyone in the impacted areas to stay safe.

The Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation is supporting emergency relief effort in the southeastern United States following Hurricane Florence, which made landfall in North Carolina on September 14. The storm is slowly moving across the Carolinas, causing widespread flooding, destroying homes and forcing thousands of residents to flee.
From the young girl who gets to attend a science camp for free, to the family stranded in a shelter after a hurricane, to the sick child and his family aboard a Miracle Flight, on their way to receive specialized medical care. These are just some of the people Astellas USA Foundation helped in 2017 through partnerships and grants – and there are many more. Behind every grant, volunteer activity or funded event are people, all of whom were helped by Astellas USA Foundation.
