World Vision has launched a multi-state disaster response effort targeting children and families impacted by Tropical Storm Isaac in Louisiana and Mississippi.
Ready to respond
From World Vision’s domestic disaster headquarters near Dallas, Texas, pre-positioned relief supplies were deployed to areas hit hardest by the storm.
“World Vision is able to mobilize quickly because our teams partner with churches and organizations already in the path of the storm,” says Phyllis Freeman, World Vision’s domestic disaster director.
Supplies available to be distributed include blankets, flood clean-up kits, personal hygiene kits, and family food kits.
Carribean nations recovering
Isaac also wreaked havoc in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, killing at least 21 people and forcing thousands to evacuate. World Vision is delivering basic supplies to families in shelters in its service area.
How you can help
Pray for children, families, and communities in the path of the storm. Pray that the damage would be minimal and that those impacted by the storm would find the help they require.
