Convoy of Hope is responding to flooding in West Virginia where at least 23 people have lost their lives. Massive storms have caused 44 counties to declare a state of emergency. With our local partners, we will deliver and distribute much-needed relief in the form of flood buckets, cleaning supplies, food, and water.
“We will be in constant communication with our partners on the ground to provide emergency supplies to families in need,” says Stacy Lamb, U.S. Response Director for Disaster Services. “In the coming days, as the waters recede, we will be able to identify how we can continue our response.”
