He said his heart goes out to everyone who is affected by the storm. “I am devastated to see the destruction that Hurricane Dorian has brought to the Bahamas, where I own property and visit frequently. My heart goes out to everyone who is suffering and to those who have lost loved ones,” wrote Jordan.

The 56-year-old player who is a frequent visitor to the Bahamas said that he will be keeping in track with the relief efforts. He said the money will be donated to the right non-profit organizations that will make the most impact.

“The Bahamian people are strong and resilient and I hope that my donation will be of help as they work to recover from this catastrophic storm,” added the player. The category 5 hurricane which occurred on 1 September 2019 destroyed the islands. According to CNN, 70,000 people have lost their homes and at least 50 people have lost their lives.
