Showing Grace and Mercy to a Suffering World
We respond to natural or manmade disasters or poverty by working through a local church or sometimes through a faith based organization. World Compassion Network assists a local church in reaching out to victims in their community by providing experience, equipment, and relief supplies. We have responded to hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, famine, earthquakes and tsunamis, and war on the continents of North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
The World Compassion Network team is joining our neighbors in Winona Lake to help clean up storm damage. Thank you to all of the volunteers and employees that are making a difference in our community.
Hurricane Harvey made landfall on August 17, 2017 devastating Houston and many surrounding communities in Texas. An estimated 27 trillion gallons of water fell during the hurricane and is looking to be the most expensive in U.S. history, surpassing Hurricane Katrina at nearly $200 billion in damage. World Compassion Network worked with several churches and agencies to bring aid to victims of this disaster. Over the course of 2 months, we sent 175,000 lbs. of relief items that reached thousands of victims and families in Houston and surrounding communities. We were able to support and strengthen several churches that are now the body of support to these communities.
On September 10, 2017, Hurricane Irma hit the Virgin & Caribbean islands before entering into Florida and other eastern Atlantic states. At one point, it was the strongest recorded Atlantic Hurricane while traveling outside the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, but weakened into a Category 3 as it made its way into the Florida mainland. World Compassion Network worked with several churches in the Jacksonville area to distribute roughly 40,000 lbs. of relief supplies to communities all over Florida.
