Responding With Aid, Restoring Dignity, and Revealing Hope
Because you care about the people affected by Hurricane Michael, we want to give you an update on Global Aid Network® (GAiN®) plans for serving people whose lives have been affected by Hurricane Michael. GAiN sent a team to assess damage and to connect with local Cru staff members and partners to determine the most urgent needs as they serve victims in the Florida Panhandle.
HELP HURRICANE VICTIMS
As a result of the assessment, GAiN sent a team of skilled staff members and volunteers to Panama City. The purpose of this team is two-fold; first to continue to bring relief to those affected by the storm, and second to lay the groundwork for future volunteer opportunities.
The damage from Hurricane Michael was significantly worse than what we witnessed from Florence — relief and recovery across the panhandle will be slower as a result. GAiN is helping lead Cru's response, so in the coming months we can mobilize a volunteer force of students and others to relieve suffering, restore dignity, and reveal hope to hurricane victims across Florida's Panhandle.
You have an opportunity to provide basic necessities that will help victims in the hurricane-ravaged area by first providing immediate aid for the displaced and then by helping them rebuild their lives. Because we deliver the aid with trained ministry teams, relationships are built, and at the proper time conversations about the eternal hope of Jesus can take place.
Consider a gift today to support the GAiN Emergency Relief initiative and meet people at their point of need with crucial supplies when emergencies hit.
Your gift will ensure that help and hope is available for victims of disaster. Thank you for expressing the kindness of Jesus through humanitarian aid — many people will be helped because of your generosity.
Over the course of 25 years of operation, GAiN has leveraged strategic global partnerships and the service of dedicated volunteers to relieve suffering through humanitarian aid in disaster situations such as earthquakes in Nepal and Haiti and Hurricanes Harvey, Maria, Katrina, and Matthew. GAiN serves people around the world as part of Cru’s diverse, 190-country network.
