Flooding continues in storm-ravaged areas of North and South Carolina. In some locations, as much as forty inches of rain has fallen threatening mudslides, cresting rivers, and the breaching of dams. The situation is dire, but help is on the way. 

Beginning this past Sunday, September 16th, trucks filled with critical relief-aid supplies began arriving in the affected areas. According to David Lorency, president of Operation Compassion, “Sixteen local churches are serving as distribution sites, along with three warehouses, and three factories. There are also three locations in the impacted area that will be used to provide hot meals.”

Through the assistance of our network of disaster relief partners such as Feed the Children, God’s Pit Crew, Hope Charitable Services, and national youth leaders, we have been able to mobilize quickly and provide a rapid response. Their help has been critical to procuring resources and providing delivery.

The situation will remain urgent for some time. Flooding continues, lives are being lost, and the need is growing. “Our donors will be essential to our ongoing relief work,” says Lorency. Partner with Operation Compassion today and help those in need!
