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.


MEXICO: Operation Blessing is responding since category 5 Hurricane Otis barreled into Acapulco, Mexico on the Pacific coast. Otis came with 165 mph winds and torrential downpours that led to flash flooding, landslides, and the deaths of more than 25 people. Our international disaster response team is on the ground in and around Acapulco providing food supplies, clean water solutions, and other key relief items to hurting hurricane survivors. 

HAWAII: After providing critical relief supplies in the wake of devastating fires, Operation Blessing is continuing to help wildfire-devastated Maui recover through a network of partners. One of the greatest long-term needs is for shelter, so we’re working with Family Life Center and King’s Cathedral Church to help provide hundreds of displaced Hawaiians with temporary homes through a community initiative called Ohana Hope Village. 

Join the effort! You can make a difference in the lives of the hurting in the wake of disaster. Your compassion brings hope and help in their darkest hours.

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. Whether it’s a historic hurricane like Katrina, an earthquake in Turkey, war in the Ukraine, a flood in West Virginia, fires in California, or a tornado in Alabama, Operation Blessing is there for those in need.
