Disaster Health Kits Project for Hurricane Harvey Survivors is Now Closed
By Elizabeth Hodges - Senior Marketing Specialist
It's been four and a half months since Hurricane Harvey shattered the homes, livelihoods, and day-to-day normalcy of thousands of people living in Texas causing 84 deaths. Our hearts broke as we witnessed record flooding in the Houston area following record rainfall and thousands were displaced from their home.
Unfortunately, 2017 was an unprecedented year for natural disasters around the world. It is through the generous support of MAP International donors that life after Hurricane Harvey and other disasters was made a little easier for those affected.
Hundreds of thousands experienced the hope of having medicines and health supplies in the most desperate of conditions. You opened your hearts in 2017 and here is what youhelped MAP accomplish with Disaster Relief in 2017:
$81 million in medicines and relief supplies was delivered to people affected by disasters.
Victims of flooding in Texas benefited from more than from more than $2 million in relief supplies provided by MAP International. These supplies helped prevent the spread of illness and provided comfort through a challenging time.
More than 4000 people who were flooded out of their homes in Texas received a MAP Disaster Health Kit.
