Who organized this raffle?

This raffle was born of a partnership between the U.S. Embassy and the Caribbean Bottling Company.  We wanted to encourage more Bahamians to get vaccinated, so we reached out to like-minded Bahamians and Americans for donations of their time, services, and products.  We are proud of this effort, and hope it leads to a safer and healthier community for everyone.

Ki moun ki te òganize raf sa a?

Raf sa a te fèt nan yon patenarya ant Anbasad Ameriken an ak Caribbean Bottling Company. Nou te vle ankouraje plis Bahamien pran vaksen an, se pou sa nou te rive jwenn avek  Bahamien ak Ameriken kap panse  menmjan pou patisipasyon nan tan yo, sèvis, ak pwodwi yo. Nou fyè de efò sa a, epi espere ke li mennen kontribye  a yon kominote pi an sekirite ak an sante pou tout moun.
