Duggars' Bahamas Efforts Mentioned on CBS





"A family from Arkansas." That's how David Begnaud, lead national correspondent for CBS News, refers to John-David Duggar, Jana Duggar, Austin Forsyth, James Duggar, and Lawson Bates when they appear in the background of a newscast.


"They flew their own plane in here so that they could be a part of it," says Begnaud. "That's what we're talking about here, folks just showing up at the airport asking for permission to go out and help."

The September 4th newscast was shot at a private airport hanger inside the Nassau, Bahamas, airport, where the Duggars and Bates and others were standing by to help. They arrived in the Bahamas on September 3rd and have been working tirelessly to evacuate hurricane victims, transport relief workers, and deliver supplies.

You can watch the video on the CBS website.

For the residents of the Bahamas, the past 36 hours have been a nightmare, as Hurricane Dorian stalled over the islands and caused mass destruction. A few of the Duggars (John-David, Jana, Jason, James, and Austin), along with Lawson Bates and Nathan Bates, flew to the Bahamas this morning to lend a hand. They are with an organization called Medic Corps and will be using their training to deliver emergency supplies and provide medical and disaster relief. Those who are interested in supporting their efforts can do so on the Medic Corps website.
