Dallas, TX, Aug. 27, 2020—Samaritan’s Purse is on the way to hard-hit Louisiana after Hurricane Laura rapidly intensified and struck the coastline as a Category 4 storm—creating widespread devastation. Disaster response specialists are currently working alongside local government officials and church partners to determine the areas of greatest need. One Disaster Relief Unit, stocked with relief supplies and tools, is already on the way to Lake Charles, Louisiana and another tractor-trailer is standing by.
Before the storm hit, the international Christian relief organization staged disaster response teams and equipment at its Southwest Ministry Center in Dallas, Texas, ready to rapidly respond to hurting communities immediately following the storm.
“Louisiana families are struggling after Hurricane Laura caused severe damage to homes,”
said Franklin Graham
, president of Samaritan's Purse. “Please continue to pray for everyone in the storm’s path and our teams as they prepare to provide critical relief to people who are hurting.”
Teams of volunteers will go out each day to help homeowners remove downed trees, clear debris, tarp roofs, mud-out flooded homes and salvage any personal belongings that may have survived the storm.
We want to thank each and every customer that has either donated directly or rounded up their purchase total. Every little bit helps, and we are very grateful to be able to make an impact, big or small.
