CDRS is partnering with Rotary to help victims of Hurricane Harvey remove dangerous mold and other health hazards from their flood-ridden homes. Once the health threat has been managed, we will help these affected communities rebuild.
Many Texans have had to flee their flooded homes and seek shelter anywhere they can find it. The flood waters receded, but even houses that were spared complete destruction are now riddled with mold and other health hazards. Unfortunately, many are moving back into their homes even though the deadly spores make them an extremely unhealthy environment for humans, especially young children and the elderly. Many farmers in the area lost 80-100% of their crops in the flood.
CDRS is managing safety inspectors, mucking crews to remove contaminated material and construction crews to manage the health threat and help needy Texans rebuild their homes and lives. We are also aiding in the relief distribution to and sheltering of evacuees with no where else to go. Our ground team is coordinating with medical teams to raise awareness of the dangers of mold and ensure that anyone who is already sick gets the treatment they need asap. We are also helping farmers recover loss.
The immediate goal is cutting the health risk out from the start. CDRS hopes to repair as many damaged homes as possible and build new homes for those people who lost everything. The number of affected individuals and communities we can assist is only limited by the funds we can collect.
