In partnership with Tropical Shipping and with generous donations from many, company's program provides 250 containers of humanitarian aid to country's National Emergency Management Agency
MIAMI, Oct. 1, 2019 /3BL/ -- Carnival Corporation & plc (NYSE/LSE: CCL;NYSE: CUK) recently announced its relief effort collected an estimated 10 million pounds of food and supplies for The Bahamas. In partnership with Tropical Shipping, the program began Sept. 4, three days after Hurricane Dorian struck the northwestern part of The Bahamas, and generated an outpouring of generous donations that has filled over 250 shipping containers.

And the need for help remains urgent, with thousands of evacuees overflowing shelters and infrastructure on Grand Bahama and the Abaco Islands largely destroyed.
