Support For Lake Charles Flood Victims

Field Report by Operation Blessing

LAKE CHARLES, LOUISIANA- Meet Mary, a proud life-long resident of Lake Charles, Louisiana. She has lived through countless storms, hurricanes, and severe weather patterns. But she has never experienced anything like the recent flood. As the waters rose, Mary could barely believe it. She had to escape her home. And she watched in horror as several feet of water engulfed her community in a matter of hours.

Flood Damage 

When she finally returned, the sight of her damaged home devastated Mary. Now she and so many others desperately needed someone to provide them with flood relief in Lake Charles. She discovered mold throughout the house. All the walls, floors, and furniture had to be removed. On top of that, Mary did not have flood insurance. The task of cleaning up and starting over seemed too expensive to hire help and too big to complete by herself. Mary didn’t know where to turn.  

Flood Relief For Lake Charles 

But that is when YOU stepped in! Your love made it possible for Operation Blessing teams to travel to her community and provide Lake Charles flood relief. Your kindness supports volunteers who work tirelessly mucking and gutting out these damaged homes, clearing debris, and offering spiritual support to disaster victims. Mary has been blessed by your generosity. Thank you! To learn how you can get involved, visit https://www.ob.org/obdisaster

  • Hi my name is Robert and my wife and I have helped partner with Operation Blessing,CBN, and Orphans Promise  because we know for sure that you guys are indeed on the ground helping people in need and for that we believe in your ministry. Can you guys please help us we are from Houma,LA too and our home suffered roof damage and mold is growing all on the walls we do believe its fixable but we really don’t know because we have never rebuilt before and we really love our home but we don’t know when or if we’ll be able to live in it again. Right now we’re still evacuated at a hotel in El Dorado,Arkansas until October but after that date we’re not sure what’s going to happen. We can’t believe this has happened to us after losing our home to Katrina in 2005 an now this on the very same exact date of the anniversary of Katrina is really devastating if you can help in anyway even if it’s to help adequately tarp the roof I promise you it would be beyond anything I could ask think or imagine I know you guys do whatever you can for people and for that I am grateful Thank you for the work you do All over the world and thank you for helping people here in my community as well. I moved here in 2007 a little after Katrina and from what I hear, folks here have never experienced this level of destruction and neither have I. I just pray for a SPEEDY recovery for all of us and much Thanks to  Operation Blessing and all the other boots on the ground helping to assist in this recovery process.

      Hi Robert, So sorry to hear that! I will pass this along to our US Disaster team. You can also call 1-800-730-2537 or Life Church in Houma to request help. Many blessings to you and your family during this difficult time.

  • I wanted to come help but was told they couldn’t give me a place to lay my head at night! I don’t know where to stay or where to go.

  • Good afternoon Operation Blessing!
    My name is Tammy. I was wondering if you need any volunteers for anything while you’re in Louisiana? I live in Gray, Louisiana. I have my own transportation and live nearby. I enjoy helping if you will have me.
