 What can we do for the victims of Hurricane Katrina?

What can we do for the victims of Hurricane Katrina?

What Christian organizations are stepping up to help the 1000's of people who have lost everything?

What a great opportunity for the church to step in and help these people and reach them meet their needs and give them the gospel.

Let's talk about this and see how we can help either financially or materially..

Anyone have any leftover Y2K food?

In Christ,

 Re: What can we do for the victims of Hurricane Katrina?


I feel [i]so bad[/i] that I didn't realize the extent of damage this storm has caused. What grievous footage I saw on the news today. May we all have the urgent and compassionate heart to help in any way we can. [i]PRAY![/i] If there's any other tangible, practical way you can help, [i]do it[/i]!

Here's some resources I found browsing the net:

I have been personally led to make a donation for one of the organizations listed above to help the victims of the hurricane. Pray about how you can help, that God would truly give you wisdom and discernment about how to meet the true need over there.

Does anyone have a resource stating % of donations used for administrative or other versus putting the money directly to the need? I think probably all of these organizations are good but I do know administrative costs can vary greatly between organizations.

This is great Yolanda and others.. I do think its important that we pray and also ask God if we are to give to help those in need. It would be great for you and others to keep the SI body posted on progress and steps in this disaster.

That's a good question. The only organization I know so far that's giving 100% of the donations towards helping the victims is Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa.

I've updated the 'HOW TO HELP' links listed above from resources I've found on other posts and topics on this forum.

Here are links to the other discussions on SI about Hurricane Katrina:

[b]About the violence in New Orleans...[/b]
I know my voice wont make much difference... but for the sake of our friends from other countries that visit this site... you're seeing all the looting and criminal activity in New Orleans. These people are an embarrassment to our country... [url=]Read more[/url]

[b]Storm, Katherina, SI Members[/b]
Just a question that came across my mind while I was having an instant message with a SI member, but how many members are there in Louisiana, Alabama, New Orleans?... [url=]Read more[/url]

[b]The Truth About Katrina?[/b]
I am not saying I agree or disagree with this, but thought it was interesting; especially considering that this week in New Orleans, they were supposed to hold what is called "Decadence Day" for the gay community. Any thoughts?... [url=]Read more[/url]

[b]L@@K!!!!! Hurricane Katrina Heading for Louisiana!! UPDATE Tuesday 30 August, 2005[/b]

[b]Relief/help to New Orleans[/b]
Do any of you know a church or Christian group that is going or has gone to New Orleans or other parts that were hit by Hurricane Katrina to help out there?... [url=]Read more[/url]

[b]Prayer for New Orleans[/b]
I was just listening to the news from New Orleans. Apparently there has been an ongoing debate in the recent years concerning whether the Superdome is a suitable hurricane shelter... [url=]Read more[/url]

As you read these discussions, I would encourage all of you to be praying for those we know who are out there, whether helping or needing help, and all those we don't know who are lost and discouraged, to cry out to God for help and to come to know Him.
