We’ve all seen the images of a baby and his mother being carried through flood water; elderly people in a nursing home awaiting rescue while they sat in waist-deep water; tents set up on the roofs of houses while families wait for someone – anyone – to help them.
Our hearts go out to the families and individuals caught up in the devastation of the Houston flood. We know yours does, as well. At a time like this, we want to do something to provide tangible help and support.
That’s why Focus on the Family is partnering with Convey of Hope, a Christian organization that specializes in disaster relief. Convey of Hope is providing on-the-ground help to families impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
Your support will help provide these families with emergency relief supplies of food, water, hygiene items and other essential items. Every $50 you can give will provide these essential supplies for a family for an entire week.
The need is great. One FEMA report says more than 30,000 people are in temporary shelters and more than 450,000 Texans will need disaster relief.
FEMA is estimating the recovery and need for help will not take months – it will take years.
Please consider giving today to support the efforts of Focus on the Family and Convoy of Hope to provide the displaced families with basic needs including food and water. Your help will give families hope in the storm.
