Operation Blessing has had decades of experience with hurricane relief. Featured below are videos from just a few of our hurricane relief initiatives. These videos depict efforts in the Southeast, Puerto Rico, and the Caribbean.
Your donations and volunteer work provide relief for hurricane victims and have a big impact on areas hit by disasters. Your support allows us to respond quickly to regions impacted by storm surge, high winds, and the terrible destruction unleashed by hurricanes.
When we begin a hurricane relief effort, we share videos showing what is being done to prepare and provide hurricane relief for an area in the path of a storm. One way to see our hurricane relief and preparation efforts is to visit our Youtube Channel, featuring scores of videos from hurricane relief and recovery efforts.
Our Hurricane Videos Show the Immensity of Relief Needed
Following a hurricane, victims need comprehensive assistance. You will notice in our videos just how much manpower goes into procuring, housing, shipping, and distributing relief aid after a storm. It can involve food, water, hygiene items, repair and cleaning supplies and more to meet the needs of a community trying to recover after a hurricane. These relief efforts require volunteers, capital, supplies, and of course a strong organization to get these resources to the people who need them.

Our videos show how your support makes an impact in the lives of hurricane victims. This support in the form of donations and time is critical during those first few days and weeks following a hurricane. The need to help provide essentials, shelter, medical care and more, requires a unified and consistent effort from friends like you. The difference your help makes is immeasurable and allows us to help more people after the shock of a category 5 and other intense hurricanes.
Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts

Relief from Hurricane Harvey: Supplies For Babies
A hurricane relief effort is about helping all of the embattled citizens of an area following a hurricane strike. After Harvey, the needs of families came in different sizes and shapes. For many with infants and young children, the loss of a home meant the need for cribs. This video shows the effort to meet these specific needs.
Hurricane Harvey Relief: Cleaning Up the Destruction

Relief Efforts for Hurricane Dorian on Video
Hurricane Dorian was one of the most powerful hurricanes to ever hit the Caribbean. This category 5 storm did untold damage in the Bahamas. Thanks to your support, Operation Blessing went into action before the hurricane even hit and continued long into the relief and recovery efforts.

Disaster relief begins with preparation.
Hurricane Relief for Dorian Starts with Supplies
This video shows how supplies of just about every type are essential to the relief effort. Basic necessities like water, electricity, food, and medical care are diminished or are outright unavailable following a hurricane. This is where your support helps us battle the suffering caused by a hurricane like Dorian.
Here is a second video that shows the days leading up to the impact of Dorian and the initiative to prepare.
Hurricane Michael made impact on the Florida Panhandle in 2018, tearing a path through places like Panama City.

Here is a short YouTube video that shows the scale of destruction of this storm and how critical your support was.
