Most powerful hurricane to hit the U.S. in a decade devastates Texas region
Please see an important message from Malteser International Americas related to the devastation in Texas due to the recent hurricane and continued flooding. All monies raised for this effort will be used for the Order's relief activities spearheaded by our Order's members in Texas.
This past weekend, Hurricane Harvey made landfall and destroyed coastal Texas, unleashing 130 mph gale force winds and knocking down trees, toppling power poles and signs, and washing away homes. A deluge of rain flooded the the region bringing with it tornadoes.
Malteser International Americas and the U.S. Associations of the Order of Malta are coordinating relief efforts to deliver help for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Members of the Order are on the ground in the affected areas.
In the coming days, families will begin to assess the devastation, much of coastal Texas has been washed away by storm surges, homes have been decimated, and many people are homeless. It has been said that entire communities will be uninhabitable for months to come.
In the wake of this debilitating hurricane, we need your help. We ask that you pray for the children and families left in its wake, and the first responders and rescue teams risking their lives to save others.
Please, give today and help us to rebuild lives in the wake of the storm, as the waters continue to rise and flooding continues to displace the most vulnerable. Support our relief measures: https://orderofmaltarelief.org/donation/
