LC Brussels Heraldic – Hurricane Dorian

Lions Club Heraldic aid reaches epicenter of Hurricane Dorian 

Following Lions Club Heraldic emergency funding of 3 tents in a rapid response for homeless families in the Bahamas, we have a first hand report from local Lions member, Etienne…and a light hearted story about a Belgian’s missing dog, Scratch.

Lions club founder member Etienne Claes,  Honorary Counsel for Belgium in the Bahamas was a surprise guest at our October Lions dinner meeting. 

Etienne gave a passionate account of the tragedy that hit the Bahamas in explicit detail. The eye of the storm with an unexpected water depth of up to 10 m caused extensive damage on the islands of Abaco and Grand Bahamas. 

Etienne has first hand information that the shelter provided by Heraldic through SOS Attitude  provided emergency relief, precisely where it was needed.

In a tragic situation, a small note of joy for a Belgian resident whose home on Abaco was destroyed but sadly lost track of his 8 months old dog, Scratch, amidst the devastation. 

The great news is that US aid workers came across Scratch who is now reunited with his family in Belgium. 

All of the Belgian nationals in the Bahamas are safe, but says Etienne, “ But he situation was really scary, it could happen anytime.”

Welcome back, Scratch, a true survivor.
