CRF is continuing to help in South Texas. We have partnered with Disaster Response Team. We are currently in the rebuilding stage. Our team will probably be there for years. If you want to join them in rebuilding, contact us. Rebuilding is always the most expensive part of disaster relief, so we could use more funds to help.
Carlos Carbajal (right) grew up as one of our sponsored children in Honduras. He now has a powerful ministry in Miami. Carlos led a team to help Hurricane victims in Immokalee, Florida. This was one of the poorest places in the US before the hurricane; now it is worse. Hardly any assistance went to this area until Carlos and CRF helped.
The earthquake near Mexico City may have led to more fatalities than all other recent disasters. Eli Garcia, our CRF director in Piedras Negras, has led a relief team to feed, encourage and help rebuild this devastated area. They have especially focused on the Cholula, Puebla area that was incredibly impacted by the earthquake.
Most people don’t even know that Haiti was hit by Hurricane Irma. But if you saw our CRF schools, churches, and roads—you would know that it was hit. Bobby Moore and Milton Jones (seen here with a new water tank) have been in Cap-Haitien, Haiti making sure that our buildings and water sources are restored.
And that’s not the end of it. Probably no one was hit harder than Puerto Rico. And then there were the fires in California. CRF was out of teams to send, but we are supporting teams with some of our partners to do as much we can to help those impacted by these tragedies.
