Unfortunately, The Hurricane Season is Here Again

9/10/2008

Every year, the hurricane season brings turmoil to the south and gulf states of United States. What makes news here in the media is the damage (or potential damage) they bring to the US soil, but there is very cursory reference to the countries and regions that these hurricanes pass through. 

With all the disaster response resources available in the US,  these hurricanes still result in significant human loss and propery damage. But we also feel for the less resourceful Carribean nations such as Haiti, Jamaica, and Dominican Republic that suffer with the passage of these hurricanes.

We would like to hear from people who may have experienced these natural disasters in those countries in recent years. Please share how you experienced or observed these hurricanes impacting the lives and properties, and how an organization like Humanity First can help in those regions in near future.
