Hurricane Harvey: Donations Needed

Texas, 06/09/2017 

A more powerful hurricane than 2005 has devastated Texas

Hurricane Harvey struck and severely destroyed the side of Texas Friday night August 25. The winds reached 215 mph on the coast and took away houses, poles and electric signs on their passages. Torrential rains have caused major flooding. Local authorities have already announced the deaths of at least three people.

Malteser International will coordinate humanitarian assistance in close cooperation with the American Association of the order of Malta to provide assistance to those affected by the hurricane. Members of the order of Malta are already present on the spot.

In the coming days, families will begin to assess the damage. Most of the houses on the coast were swept away by the winds and rains. Many people find themselves homeless. Some communities will remain uninhabitable for several months.  In the aftermath of the disaster, local people need your help. We invite you to pray for the families affected by the hurricane and all the rescue teams who risk their lives to help others.

Please donate today to help in the reconstruction of those who have lost everything. You can support our projects and donate here: https://orderofmaltarelief.org/donation/
