Operation Compassion Sends Relief Aide to Florida

By , September 19, 2017

Even before Hurricane Irma made landfall in Florida, Operation Compassion was preparing and sending relief help. On Saturday as Irma was churning in the Florida Keys, Operation Compassion had 2 trucks of bottled water being delivered to the Wimauma Campground where refugees had gathered but were running low on water. This early delivery set the stage for the many trucks being staged and the disaster relief locations that were being set up just waiting for Irma to pass.

As Hurricane Irma continued its path of destruction through Florida it became clear what areas would need help, more help and the most help as homes and business were destroyed by high winds, surf and general flooding. Many island roads and bridges became unpassable and the Florida peninsula was in general disarray.

Operation Compassion has used all of the available resources in this first week of relief operations in Florida. There have been 18 disaster relief sites established working to help and assist their communities and 31 trucks delivered with necessary product to help survivors continue in the oppressive Florida sun.

 

With another major storm bearing down on Florida, Hurricane Maria, this disaster relief effort will be a long term process. People are desperate to put their homes and lives back together but will need the help of people like you. Help today! Donate!
