In times of natural disaster God calls us to help and because He lives we can make a difference. We are His hands, feet, eyes, and ears, but most of all His heart. Holy Savior is partnering with different organizations to respond to the needs of those affected by natural disasters locally, nationally, and abroad.
Disaster relief consists of three phases – recovery, restoration, and rebuild: Recovery consists of initial clean-up and debris cleaning; Restoration consists of damage assessment, a more thorough “gut-out”, clean-up, and planning of rebuilding; and Rebuild consists of construction of new structures and restoration of those damaged that can be saved.
When we respond to natural disasters, we come with a servant’s heart and attitude. We will be prepared to perform whatever tasks asked to do, as our primary concern is the need of the individuals, family, and community affected by the disaster. All team members are contacted as soon as opportunities present themselves, and teams are organized accordingly.
