$40,000 raised by Niagara couple to help victims in Bahamas

$40,000 has now been raised by a Fort Erie couple to help their neighbours in the Bahamas following Hurricane Dorian.

Ken and Fiona Williams launched a GoFundMe page after they lost their winter home on the island, raising money to help provide basic supplies for immediate survival for their friends who have lost everything.

The couple is planning on driving to Fort Lauderdale with donated items to a ferry which will bring them to the island.

They say while they lost their home, they still have a residence in Niagara, which is far more than many of their friends on the island have.

The goal of the campaign was $40,000, but they've now raised it to $60,000.
