Disaster Relief

Help disaster victims

Whether it’s a natural disaster such as a hurricane, tornado or earthquake, or refugees in the midst of life-threatening conflict needing critical relief, Operation Blessing relief teams give hope and help when it’s needed most, including distributing food, safe water, medicine and other vital supplies to meet the immediate needs of those suffering. Then, to help communities begin the long-term recovery process, teams assist with debris clean-up and repairs—including Extreme Blessing Home Makeover projects in the U.S.—as well as microenterprise projects to help boost the economy, recover jobs and get families back on their feet. Learn more about how we help disaster victims in need by reading our Disaster Relief Strategies booklet.

INTERNATIONAL DISASTER RELIEF

Operation Blessing’s disaster relief efforts have touched lives in nations all across the globe:

  • Deadly earthquakes

    Responding to deadly back-to-back 8.1-magnitude and 7.1-magnitude earthquakes in Mexico and Guatemala by distributing essential food, water, tents, and other emergency supplies. In 2015, we also undertook massive relief efforts after two major earthquakes struck Nepal. This included distributing much-needed food supplies, blankets, flashlights and hand-held chlorination units to disinfect large amounts of potentially dangerous water, making it safe to drink.

  • Medical supplies

    Training prevention teams and delivering medical supplies and chlorine generators to Liberia to fight the Ebola virus.

  • Aiding refugees

    Distributing much-needed supplies to the Middle East to aid refugees and families living in Internally Displaced Persons camps to escape persecution from Islamic militant group ISIS.

  • Providing fishing boats

    Providing fishing boats and other critical resources to families devastated by the 2011 Japan earthquake and tsunami and also aiding victims of Typhoon Haiyan that struck the Philippines in 2013.

  • Cleaning debris

    After Hurricane Harvey brought historic flooding to the Texas coast, Operation Blessing sent out thousands of volunteers to help devastated residents recover. Likewise, after Hurricane Sandy Operation Blessing worked clearing debris and repairing homes along the eastern coast.

  • Healing and hope

    Working to bring healing and hope to Haiti after the 2010 earthquake and cholera outbreak.
