TULSA - Just over two weeks ago, the Bahama’s were devastated by Category 5 Hurricane Dorian, killing at least 50 people and thousands still missing.

A group of local doctors left for the islands Thursday morning to provide assistance.

The group of 13 medical personal from In His Image International will be in the Bahamas for 11 days.

Dr. Esther Papp, one of the physicians going on the disaster relief trip, said they will be providing support and medicine since most of the clinics are shut down.

She said Green Country received a lot of help after the recent may floods and believes in giving back to others who are suffering.

“We’re all Christians and the biggest thing for all of us is we love god and we want God’s love to be shown and we want the Bahamians to know that they’re not alone and they’re not forgotten," said Papp. "There’s hope."

Delta Airlines is helping as well by offsetting the cost for the bags carrying the medicine and supplies.
