Delivering Hope After One of the Most Powerful Hurricanes on Record to Hit the US

Hurricane Ida made landfall on Sunday, August 29, 2021 as an extremely dangerous Category 4 storm with 145 mph winds at Port Fourchon, Louisiana.

It finally weakened to a Category 2 storm nearly 10 hours after it made landfall. Such a strong hurricane so far inland is devastating for the state.

UPDATE OCTOBER, 2021: We found this to be one of the most challenging disasters to respond to in recent memory due to supply chain issues. We believe the Lord is using this to bring our awareness to the need to pre-position items in the future and He has brought together a coalition of partners to do so. Despite the challenges, we were able to place:

  • 3 truckloads of bottled water
  • 1 truckload of frozen breads
  • 100 coolers to a hospice agency
  • Ice packs
  • 1 truckload of Kind bars
  • 2 truckloads of bleach
  • 2 truckloads of mold-remediation products

Power outages topped one million and early estimates predicted it taking weeks until water and power were back on in Orleans Parish. The storm caused catastrophic damage; levees were overpowered, hundreds of people were stranded by flooding, and buildings destroyed.

We worked with partners to assess our resources to get water, non-perishable foods, tarps, and roofing shingles into the state. What supplies we couldn't get donated were purchased.

Thank you for your support. Please continue to pray!
