The states of Texas and Louisiana in the United States were hit by Hurricane Harvey in August 2017, which left a devastating trail of destruction and mayhem. Harvey caused more than 90 deaths and heavy economic losses. More than 30,000 people were displaced as a consequence of this disaster. We provided immediate relief to the people of Houston in the aftermath of this calamitous situation in varied ways:
- Providing meals to the affected
- Distributing medicines, clothes and other essentials
- Distributing school kits to children
- Donating blood
- Participating in clean-up activities in the affected areas.
