Hurricane Dorian in 2019 was one of the strongest Atlantic hurricanes on record, and the strongest hurricane to have ever hit the Bahamas causing flooding and mass destruction on the islands of Abaco and Grand Bahama.​

In response to the widespread damage done to private and community infrastructure, IOM was joined with local implementing partners to build RHUs as temporary shelters.
