In December 2019, Composites Canada teamed up with Global Medic to provide disaster relief in the Bahamas.
We were able to help with assessing the needs of the fisherman, provide a wide array of composites materials that the mission needed, and send our marine technical expert, Jason Pozzo to guide the fisherman and repair team in understanding the features of the composites material and how to use them to repair their boats.
Tim Aylen, Reporter and friend of Composites Canada was recently in the Bahamas and met some of the Fisherman who Composites Canada worked with in December 2019. Great to see how well our Bahamian friends are doing in getting their livelihoods back.
