Orange Restoration Provides Humanitarian Assistance to Hurricane Dorian Victims
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 10/12/2019
San Diego, CA: Orange Restoration, announced today that they are offering Humanitarian Assistance on the ground to the victims of Hurricane Dorian in The Bahamas on behalf of smartAID. Two Orange Restoration executives, Yaron Lief and Eyal Rubin, are flying to the Bahamas and delivering aid to the affected areas.
Communication is crucial during the initial stages of any humanitarian crisis and tends to break down quickly due to power and connectivity issues. Orange Restoration has engineered some unique technology to facilitate communication amongst first responders which will improve recovery efforts. They have created special charging stations, powered by solar panels, that will be used to charge the equipment of first responders. They will also be providing mobile Walkie Talkies, Wifi Hotspots and Cellular Hotspots in order to facilitate communication between aid organizations on the ground and their headquarters.
In addition, Orange Restoration will distribute thousands of individual water purification systems, solar flashlights and solar lightening systems. And due to the urgent need, reported by first responders, they will be distributing feminine hygiene products.
Orange Restoration is opening a donation center for feminine hygiene products at their corporate headquarters in Miramar. The donation center is located at:
7554 Trade Street, Unit C, San Diego, CA 92121.
All donations need to be received by Saturday, September 14th as the aid will be shipped to the Bahamas the following Monday. In lieu of giving feminine hygiene products, you can donate to: https://www.smartaidint.org.
Dorian is the strongest hurricane to ever strike The Bahamas. It made landfall on the northern Bahamian island of Abaco midday on September 1 as a Category 5 storm, and made landfall on Grand Bahama the following day. It carried maximum sustained winds of 185 mph and a possible storm surge of 23 feet above normal tide levels.
