The Texas gulf coast has experienced over 50 inches of rain since Hurricane Harvey made landfall on August 25, 2017, with wind gusts reaching upwards of 132 mph. Due to record flooding, early estimates indicate that 30,000 people will be forced from their homes to seek safety.
The widespread damage and catastrophic flooding have made the recovery efforts challenging, as roads and physical infrastructure are largely inaccessible. The essential needs of medical equipment, shelter, water, food, and emergency healthcare are going to be critical for the relief and recovery efforts.
Thanks to the contributions of generous supporters around the world, BAPS Charities is responding to this call to action in Houston and surrounding areas. BAPS Charities and its volunteers are working alongside local state officials and first responders to provide assistance.
