The U Responds: Hurricane Dorian Response Fund


Our University of Miami community knows intimately the devastating impact of a powerful storm. We have all been closely following the stories of the people affected by Hurricane Dorian, especially those living in the Bahamas and along the U.S. Atlantic coastal region. Thousands of individuals and families have evacuated their homes, with many in need of shelter, food, water, and basic necessities.

With this in mind, The U Responds. Through medical and humanitarian efforts, the University of Miami is committed to putting our expertise and innovation to work, helping those in the Bahamas and other impacted regions along the Atlantic coast. Your contribution to the Hurricane Dorian Response Fund will support these efforts.
