STAY UP TO DATE AND EXPERIENCE BRILAND AID
Bringing Us Together
Keep Up With Our Progress
Mark your calendars! On Tuesday, July 13, 2021, we invite you to join the virtual, Global and National virtual launch of the song “Love’s Coming Back”! Briland Aid is one the beneficiaries of the campaign.
As the world emerges from lockdown and the Bahamas reopens for travellers, people across the country are searching for hope and assurance in these unprecedented times. Answering this call, Dave Stewart of the Grammy winning Eurythmics who feels a deep connection with the country and the people and has made a home here, was moved to write and produce a special song ‘Love’s Coming Back’ as a gift to the Bahamas and the world.
A rallying anthem intended to raise the morale of the people of the Bahamas and the world, ‘Love’s Coming Back’ will be used to raise funds in support of youth and environmental projects, managed by the Briland Aid organization and the Bahamas National Trust respectively.
With warm vocals by a young Bahamian artiste Dayonna and an infectious hook, the inspirational song will be launched to a national and global audience on Tuesday, July 13, 2021. The event scheduled at 11:00 a.m. can be viewed on www.lovescomingback.com as
well as on the campaign’s social media platforms YouTube, Instagram and Facebook. There will also be a simulcast release across all Bahamian radio and television stations as well as several online music platforms including Spotify, The Orchard and itunes.
Bahamians at home and abroad are invited to participate in the launch event.

Over the past few months, Briland Aid has come a very long way in their distribution process. Our team has already distributed food to 534 homes, distributed 6,800 gallons of clean drinking water, and distributed a months supply of propane to 300 homes. Briland Aid has recently been recognized for all of this hard work and more by Bahamas Local, a local Bahamian news station. We are very proud of the great work we have done so far.

We are very excited to see our Briland Job Corps program kick off these first few weeks of June! We have a lot of work ahead of us, but we have already started to capitalize on some of the island's most needed improvement projects. Check the bottom of our home page for pictures and videos of our progress so far!
During the first two weeks of May, Briland Aid provided food and paper goods for 1,175 families or approximately 2,600 people. After these first few weeks, we have been able to establish a more solid and quantifiable plan for moving forward over the next few months. We are gearing up to start Briland Jop Corps, and are being thorough in collecting the necessary supplies for our Brilanders!
Our top priority is to ensure that no one in need is left behind and that we are procuring supplies in sufficient quantities. One of our teams on the ground is going door to door to conduct our own census, and we will also use government data, church data, and other aid groups to most accurately assess the size and needs of our target population.
