Building Back Better

By IsraAID Staff | Houston, Texas

Hurricane Harvey, a Category 4 storm, caused immense damage in parts of Texas, including over 100 fatalities, when it made landfall in August 2017. It is among the costliest natural disasters to hit the United States, and recovery efforts continue in many of the highly impacted areas.

Beyond continued work to recover, there is an identified need for better preparation ahead of future, potential storms which continue to threaten the area. In Houston, storms and their subsequent flooding are a constant risk By creating emergency plans, increasing community resilience and building back better, IsraAID and its partners can help to minimize their negative impact.

The IsraAID team is currently supporting a coalition of community-based organizations working on relief efforts following disasters and preparedness for future events. IsraAID is leading the process to strengthen these organizations in the Houston area, to learn from their successes and challenges in previous responses, and create a workplan for future crises. This will facilitate improved response next time the community is need of support. A series of workshops will be held in November, during which participating organizations will develop and implement these workplans, will support from IsraAID’s Disaster Risk Reduction specialists.

In addition to this Coalition Building Program, IsraAID is hosting Psychological First Aid Trainings and Service Provider Self Care for different organizations to take place in November. These trainings will provide local community leaders from different sectors with additional skillsets, enabling them to support their community impacted from Hurricane Harvey, as well as build resilience for future events.

Stay tuned to hear the results of all these initiatives and trainings! Thank you very much for your ongoing support!
