Impact: How to Help the Hurricane Victims

By Tonka Dobreva 08.29.2017 interact

Hurricane Harvey crushed into Texas with winds at over 130 miles per hour, causing massive flooding and prompting the National Weather Service to call it “beyond anything expected.” A week later, Hurricane Irma shook homes and flooded buildings in small Caribbean islands and left more than 15 million people without power in several U.S. states, including Florida and Georgia.

Here are some groups working to provide urgent help for the victims of these recent natural disasters — learn how you can support them:

  • American Red Cross — working around the clock to help the thousands of people whose lives have been devastated by the hurricanes.
  • Americares — distributing water, aid and mobilizing medical outreach in partnership with local organizations.
  • Save the Children — providing the shelters with the necessary equipment and services to keep children safe.

    You could get lots of food like canned so that their want be so much exposure of water, make sure everyone is safe or isn´t badly injured, and find things very useful to help people or buildings when the storm dies down.
