Challenge

On Sunday 24th of May, Texas was hit by some of the worst flooding in its history. Twenty-three people lost their lives, and thousands of families were affected, many whom are now homeless. For families that lack the physical or economic resources, the situation is debilitating and cripples their ability to rehabilitate and continue their life

Solution

Drawing on over a decade of humanitarian responses in 29 countries, IsraAID will send a 7 man disaster response and relief team to the flood-affected areas around Wimberley, Texas. The goal is to provide immediate relief and guide local communities in their efforts to clean out destroyed homes, as well as lay the groundwork for future rehabilitation and reconstruction initiatives.

Long-Term Impact

This cleaning stage is crucial to avoid major health and hygiene issues from contaminated water, and open sewage. In addition, there is a psychological added value, as home owners are often so overwhelmed by the devastation and the loss of their entire lives' valuables (and often of past generations as well), that they are paralyzed by the situation. Coming in to clean up the mess and move them on to rebuilding helps create a positive momentum towards rehabilitation and recovery.
