Hope Springs Eternal

Description

In Portsmouth, Va., Hope Charitable Services, a World Vision partner, is delivered relief supplies after Hurricane Matthew.

Hurricane Matthew blasted the U.S. east coast, leaving more than 40 people dead and thousands of homes flooded and without power. The storm saved its heaviest rainfall for the Carolinas. But communities all along the Eastern Seaboard experienced damaging floods and storm surge.

World Vision quickly dispatched semi truckloads of relief supplies to North Carolina and Virginia. Pre-positioned goods went to evacuated families in Georgia.

“We wanted these supplies to provide tangible help to churches serving local families in need and to communicate our support and solidarity with them as they rebuild,” said Nate Youngblood, World Vision’s director of domestic disaster response. Cleaning supplies, mosquito nets, tarps, gloves, toys, and hygiene items distributed through churches helped bring hope to families recovering from floods.
