Palm Beach Co. volunteers working to ‘Bring Back the Bahamas’

Volunteers with the Bahamas Relief Cruise continue to assist in recovery efforts on Grand Bahamas Island as the needs of the island change, some three months after Hurricane Dorian stalled over the Bahamas. …

Ricardo McPhee can speak to the hope medical care can give. He met Bahamas Relief Crews volunteers in his job at the port. McPhee is a double amputee from diabetes.

On Friday morning, medical workers with the relief cruise and a the charity “Hope to Walk,” which specializes in low-cost prosthetics in underprivileged areas, gave McPhee two new legs.

“I was just thinking how wonderful, how remarkable God is to bring people into my life like this,” McPhee said.

He stood for the first time on his tile floor, still slightly slippery from the on and off island rain.

“It feels good,” McPhee said through teary, blurry eyes.
