Hurricane Ivan - 2004

Disaster Response Team delivers relief to Hurricane Ivan victims

Hurricane Relief, Delivering rolls of vinyl tarp for temporary repairs.Disaster Relief Ship HOPE is currently sailing home to Port Mercy, Louisiana from a Disaster & Relief mission to Pensacola, Florida where the Coast Guard and port authorities opened the channel and the Port of Pensacola (closed to all commercial traffic) just for “Hope” to deliver her supplies. The crew quickly set up base camp at a location near three of the hardest hit communities where people had no power or running water.  We kept busy distributing needed supplies as up to 20 cars and trucks at a time pulled into the camp to load up with much appreciated heavy vinyl tarp material for temporary roofing, clothes, mattresses, blankets, bottled water and personal care items we had to distribute.  We also prepared and served hardy cooked meals.  Thank you for helping us to be able to help the people of Pensacola.

We were able to assist the fire department in delivering water tanks to areas without water and provided tarp to cover their station that lost its roof. Thousands are still without power, refrigeration and useable water.  Our response teams drove our 6 x 6 truck into the communities offering door to door service of free roofing materials, prepared meals and prayer. We provided hundreds of cooked meals for government workers and relief workers as well as for the residents in the community damaged by Hurricane Ivan.

 

HURRICANE IVAN.  Thousands of people lost their homes and everything they owned.

So many have been affected by this terrible hurricane season. Rich and poor alike were in need of the items we had to distribute.  Many have lost all of their possessions.  People receiving goods were so very grateful for the free supplies and services.  Everyone has been happy to receive prayer and ask the Lord to help them through these circumstances.  Some have said that “we are like angels sent to them in a time of need”.

Again, a special thanks to you, our support team, who make it possible for us to help people in times of trouble.

YOU CAN HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE!  Consider a financial gift for this effort.  Funds donated will be used to help us help victims of Hurricane Ivan in the most effective way.  Because we own and operate our own ships, Friend Ships is glad to take donations of both goods and funds.  The entire Friend Ships staff is composed of unpaid volunteers so your gift goes far to meet needs and makes a great impact! By helping to restock now, we can be ready to assist if further assistance is necessary for those affected by this current Hurricane and Tropical Storm Season.  The target areas being considered include Grenada, Haiti and Jamaica. 

To donate funds for this effort, (click here - Please specify in the comments "Disaster Response").  If you would like to donate goods and supplies or get more information, email or call "Port Mercy" at (337) 433-5022.  Together we can be a blessing to people in need!
