Update on the Adopt-a-Family Hurricane Relief Campaign
Tuesday, 28 February 2006 00:00

The Adopt-a-Family Hurricane Relief Campaign has continued to provide support and hope to families in the areas affected by the infamous hurricanes of 2005. To date, AVSI-USA has channeled the very generous support of many individuals, families, and companies to 48 families. Shortly, AVSI-USA will disburse the remaining funds. At that time, we will publish a final report that documents the surprising and extremely moving events that took place as a result of this gesture of solidarity in the face of an emergency.

 

In the meantime, we share one note from a family helped by the friends of AVSI-USA:

 

Dear AVSI and Adopt-a-Family Hurricane Relief Members,

Thank you so much for your generous donation to our family. Hurricane Katrina has turned our world upside down but with people like you and with God’s help we’ll get through this difficult time. IT is very comforting to know that there are people in the world who extend their hearts to those in time of crisis. We were very moved by your generosity to our family, especially at Christmastime when we are so homesick. At present we are living in a rental house and are working to rebuild our homes and our lives one step at a time. Hopefully, one day we’ll be able to return the generosity given to us to another family in need. Thanks again for your beach of hope.
