The tropical storms that devasted the Bahamas are a hot topic these days and not even NBA players were immune to the unfortunate events that recently happened. Klay Thompson is one of the NBA players that decided to help the local community and do everything that is in his power to help the Bahamian families that lost everything they had in these hurricanes.
Klay delivered a very powerful message on his social media accounts, calling people to make any kind of contribution they can through his foundation. He also called out the USA administration for ignoring what is happening in the Bahamas and saying government officials should do more to help the people who are in need of food and shelter.
These past few weeks have been so unimaginably hard for Bahamians, especially on the islands of Abaco and Freeport. People have lost everything- loved ones, family, possessions, homes. Whatever you cherish it’s gone for these communities. This is far from a quick fix, it will take years and years of rebuilding. The @thompsonfamilyfoundation will do everything in its power to help with relief efforts right now and for many years to come. All contributions no matter how big or small will go long way and are greatly appreciated.
Secondly, shame on our current administration for not welcoming our Bahamian neighbors in their greatest time of need. I’ve been so lucky to visit my family in Nassau since childhood, and in those times I’ve seen countless Americans use the Bahamian islands as their playground for letting loose and vacationing. And now we turn our back on the people who welcomed us with open arms, when they’ve lost everything !? There’s no excuse for this... and if you have one your a real piece of ? Bahamians will persevere, but help along the way is greatly appreciated. Thank you ❤️ ??
