Returning to New Orleans 10 years after Hurricane Katrina

Operation Blessing returns to New Orleans to visit some of the projects OBI played a major role in ten years ago after Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast

Having spent more than 2 years in the New Orleans area helping Katrina victims, Operation Blessing’s vice president of U.S. disaster relief & programs, Jody Gettys, returned to New Orleans to visit some of the projects OBI played a major role in ten years ago and catch up with some of those whose lives our teams touched.

I recently had the opportunity to go back to New Orleans and reconnect with some very dear people that we helped during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina who have become life-long friends and visit the some of the projects we worked on.

Operation Blessing partners held deliver food and supplies to families in need across America

A joy to help

Operation Blessing partners held deliver food and supplies to families in need across America

PENNSYLVANIA – Melissa and her husband, Mike, had run a successful real estate appraisal business for more than a decade — earning enough to provide for their family and afford the specialized diet their son, Ian, required.

But then Mike started showing signs of the early stages of dementia, and he could no longer help with the business. Matters got worse when a downturn in the economy meant fewer appraisals were needed. As their business steadily declined, Melissa searched for a different job.
