In one day last week, the Buckner Family Hope Center at Houston/Aldine distributed food, water, cleaning supplies, hygiene items and clothes to hundreds of Hurricane Harvey victims. Among them was this young lady.
Aleida is two years old. Her family lost everything in their apartment because of flooding caused by the storm. Her family is served through the Hope Center and came seeking emergency supplies.
While she was there, Aleida picked up these pink rain boots “in case the water comes back in my house.”
Families are coming to grips with the damage the storm left behind. They’re realizing the long road ahead. While visiting with a mother whose home was flooded as were her two vehicles, worn eyes fought back tears as she shared her story. She’s not sure when her family will be able to return to their home.
Volunteers are working in the area through Buckner. Families are cleaning out their homes. They are forging plans for their futures.
This week, will you pray for the children and families affected by Hurricane Harvey and those who are trying to help them?
