Hurricane Michael

Hurricane Michael, one of the strongest storms to hit the United States in recorded history, devastated areas of the Florida Panhandle to Virginia. Entire towns were decimated. Homes, business and agriculture were damaged or destroyed across four states.

With your help and in partnership with MAP International and Convoy of Hope, we have delivered 11,520 ready to eat meals and 3,500 disaster health kits to survivors of Hurricane Michael in Florida. We have also provided 720 families with prepackaged meal kits and distributed 1,802 respirator masks that protect against mold for victims as they clean out their damages houses.

This historic storm will have a lasting effect on the region for decades to come. You can help those who are suffering get through the darkest time in their lives by providing them with emergency aid and hope for their future to rebuild.
