Response Continues Following Catastrophic Flooding

Hope in Every Storm

We plan to stay as long as we need to in order to help families get back on their feet.

Convoy of Hope’s Disaster Services team continues to respond to historic flooding in Louisiana where more than 145,000 structures — commercial and residential — were impacted. More than 1 million pounds of food, water, cleaning supplies, hygiene kits and other much-needed items have been distributed.

“We are working with partners in the area and plan to stay in full distribution mode for the next several days,” says Hal Donaldson, president and co-founder of Convoy of Hope. “Once the immediate needs have been met, we can start debris removal and cleanup operations.”

To date, Convoy of Hope has sent 41 truckloads to the affected areas, serving nearly 40,000 people.

“We plan to stay as long as we need to in order to help families get back on their feet,” Donaldson adds. “Our partners and friends allow us to help these families get back into their homes and we couldn't be more grateful.”

Convoy was among the first organizations to respond. For more information and to follow the response, visit
