Hurricane Laura was only the beginning of a series of emergencies for this region. Late last evening (OCT 09) Hurricane Delta came into the area and destroyed weeks worth of progress in rebuilding.
Even though we had a week to help people prepare to evacuate, it is still a bitter taste to the area to have to relive the damage and loss. Some of the infrastructure was already on its last leg and now many of those structures that held some potential of being salvaged didn't or won't survive now.
Thousands of people were coming to food pantries and distribution sites before now and we imagine that when the storm fully passes later today those lines will be longer. The bad part is that we don't have that kind of supply, so we need your help.
Please consider helping and also spreading the word about our efforts.
