This is only the first phase of a full-scale response that will last for many weeks, if not months. - Hal Donaldson, president of Convoy of Hope

International humanitarian relief organization Convoy of Hope is responding to the Moore, Okla. area this morning. Immediately after the devastating tornadoes struck, a Convoy of Hope assessment team was in the area and tractor-trailers were loaded with emergency supplies at Convoy of Hope’s World Distribution Center in Springfield, Missouri.

“This is only the first phase of a full-scale response that will last for many weeks, if not months,” says Hal Donaldson, president of Convoy of Hope. “In the coming days we will send more food, water and supplies to help families begin rebuilding their lives.”

Early this morning, those tractor-trailers and specially-trained, disaster response teams members departed for Moore.
