Samaritan’s Purse Continues to Aid Gulf Coast Families in the Wake of Hurricane Delta

International Christian Relief Organization Responds in Four Louisiana Locations

BOONE, N.C., OCT. 12, 2020—Weeks after responding to Hurricanes Laura and Sally, Samaritan's Purse continues to aid Gulf Coast families in the wake of Hurricane Delta. The Category 2 storm struck a nearly identical path to Hurricane Laura, creating catastrophic damage and further hindering the recovery process of so many hurting families.

The international Christian relief organization has already helped more than 650 families in five locations across Alabama and Louisiana recover from Hurricanes Laura and Sally in the past month. Volunteers will continue to aid impacted families by going out into the hardest-hit communities to help families remove downed trees, clear debris and tarp roofs while reminding families that God loves them and they are not alone.

“I cannot begin to imagine the physical and emotional toll so many Gulf Coast families have experienced after enduring three hurricanes within a matter of weeks,” dijo Franklin Graham, presidente de Samaritan's Purse. “Please join me in praying that God’s peace and comfort would cover them as they continue to recover from these storms.”

As Hurricane Delta threatened the Gulf Coast, disaster response specialists worked alongside local government officials to determine the best plan to ensure the safe evacuation of Samaritan's Purse staff, volunteers, and equipment already working in the area.

Chaplains from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association's Rapid Response Team will also work alongside Samaritan's Purse to provide emotional and spiritual encouragement to families impacted by the hurricane.
