While we do not yet know the full impact of Hurricane Ida, we do know that damage is widespread; and that more than a million people across southern Louisiana are without power.
Week of Compassion is in touch with partners and church leaders in the area, and we are prepared to respond as needs emerge. Our prayers are with first responders who are working around the clock to help those in need right now.
We are also working with Disciples churches in western Louisiana and southeast Texas that have been affected by past hurricanes and are already organizing and preparing to serve their neighbors in the days ahead.
We will share more information as it becomes available, but for now, the best way to help is to stay, pray, and give. We invite you to join us in prayer for those in affected communities and to give to Week of Compassion, designating gifts for “hurricane.” Give on our website or text WoC to 41444.
