Hurricane Ida ripped through Louisiana on Sunday, August 29th, making landfall as an “extremely dangerous” Category 4 storm with sustained winds of 150 mph and leaving a wave of destruction. A storm becomes a Category 5 at 157 miles an hour. Ida then churned inland, bringing catastrophic winds, heavy rainfall, and tornado watches, along with the danger of flash and urban flooding plus life-threatening storm surge along the coasts of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. Ida’s landfall coincided with the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina’s landfall in southeast Louisiana and Mississippi on Aug. 29, 2005. It ties Hurricane Laura (2020) and the Last Island Hurricane (1856) as the strongest to ever hit Louisiana.
Affected children and families are in need of immediate aid. World Vision is rushing truckloads of critically needed supplies to the area, working closely with our local church partners to reach the most vulnerable. Your gift will help deliver resources like tarps and tents, generators, cleaning supplies, and more.
Please join us in prayer for children and families who are hurting in the wake of Hurricane Ida. Your generosity toward those in crisis is a witness to God’s loving care.
Your gift is a sacred trust. We promise to honor your generosity and use your donation in the most effective way possible. The gift options shown reflect World Vision projects and the suggested donation amounts are based on periodic surveys of the countries we serve. Each item is representative of the gift category in which it appears, and donations will be used to provide assistance within that gift category where it is needed most. When you give any animal gift, a portion of the gift may also help provide watering sources, farming assistance, hunger relief, and other related essentials as needed.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
