Disaster Relief

Every year, people around the world struggle to survive when disaster strikes. Whether it’s a natural disaster such as a hurricane, tornado, earthquake or tsunami, or refugees in the midst of life-threatening conflict needing critical relief, Operation Blessing is helping disaster victims endure and recover by providing critical aid.


**MOROCCO: Operation Blessing is in Morocco responding to a devastating 6.8-magnitude earthquake that struck on 09/08/23 near the city of Marrakech, leaving thousands dead or injured. Our international disaster relief team is working with local partners to provide critical aid including food, clean water, solar lights, and blankets.

HAWAII: Operation Blessing is helping wildfire-devastated Maui recover through a network of churches and other partners in affected areas. We’ve provided relief items including water filtration systems, tents, clothing, hygiene supplies, tarps, lanterns, generators, grills and propane for cooking, fishing gear, etc. We’re also working on an initiative to provide displaced families with more permanent shelter. 

UKRAINE: We continue to work in Ukraine and Poland offering food, encouragement, and critical supplies like hygiene items, clothing, and blankets to Ukrainian refugees.**

Help Disaster Victims!

When disasters like tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, or other humanitarian crises strike, YOU are there to show the hurting the love of God with immediate relief and long-term recovery.

Operation Blessing partners, staff, and disaster relief volunteers are the first on the ground, partnering with emergency management and local churches to bring food, clean water, medicine and other vital supplies to meet the immediate needs of those suffering.

Then, after others have left, YOU continue to help with the long-term disaster recovery process. Teams of Operation Blessing disaster relief staff and volunteers assist with debris clean up and repairs, as well as providing microenterprise and small business support to help recover jobs and get families back on their feet. In Operation Blessing’s 2021 fiscal year, you enabled us to respond to 18 disasters in the U.S. and a number of international catastrophes. Within these past few years, we have also responded to a number of devastating hurricanes including Hurricane Ian, Fiona, Laura, Delta, and Iota. In Operation Blessing’s 2022 fiscal year, you helped us respond worldwide during times of war and political conflict, hurricane and tornado season, famine, flooding, typhoons, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and fuel explosions. 

Thanks to faithful friends like you, Operation Blessing is on the cutting edge of disaster response, providing both immediate and long-term relief for people facing crisis and disaster. With unmatched experience working with emergency management, law enforcement, and local churches, Operation Blessing is a disaster relief organization that’s able to provide the greatest impact quickly and efficiently.
