Extreme disasters are striking close to home in the U.S. and around the world this year. From now until the end of November 2017, all donations to our Disaster Relief Fund will support our missions for those impacted by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria in the United States; and our international disaster aid mission for the earthquake in Mexico.
So many people are suffering and in distress after major catastrophes, and they desperately need our love and support. Please #JoinHands with us to provide vital immediate aid that will help restore hope as they struggle to recover.
Tzu Chi USA volunteers have been actively providing Hurricane Harvey disaster relief in Greenspoint, Dickinson, Wharton, Beaumont, La Grange, Richmond and Rosenberg, Mesa community, Rockport, and Port Arthur, as well as house cleanups in Bellaire.
The first phase of our Hurricane Harvey disaster relief mission has now ended, and we are immensely grateful to have been able to provide close to $7 million in direct cash card emergency disaster aid, helping over 12,000 families (nearly 35,000 individuals) in the hardest hit areas.
Tzu Chi will be there to provide further assistance in Texas.
