Help us as we address the long term needs of the people.
As "Superstorm Sandy" slammed into the Eastern Seaboard it brought historic storm surges, heavy rains and hurricane force winds. In its wake, more than 100 people in the U.S. lost their lives, 8.2 million were left without electricity, and thousands have lost homes and possessions.
Sandy is being blamed for more than 50 deaths in the already struggling Caribbean nation of Haiti. The storm swiped Haiti as a category 1 hurricane, causing widespread flooding and devastation, before turning north toward the East Coast of the U.S. earlier this week. The U.N. estimates 1,8 million people in Haiti were affected, with 18,000 homes flooded, damaged or destroyed.
World Concern is responding directly in our project areas of Haiti to aid families affected by the disaster. In the U.S., we're responding through partner organizations and local churches to reach people with emergency assistance.
Like you, our hearts are broken as we witness the devastation caused by this massive storm. Please stand with us in prayer for those who have lost everything, and please donate today. Whatever amount you can give will make a difference in the lives of those suffering through a disaster of this magnitude.
With the support of our donors who answered the call to help families affected by Hurricane Sandy, we’re reaching people with critical aid.
