When Disaster Hits Home

As a MAP board member, I’ve had the privilege of seeing how MAP responds to disasters.On a visit to Haiti in August I saw how MAP helped respond to the devastation caused by Hurricane Matthew a year ago and how MAP’s partners on the ground were helping those affected rebuild their lives.


Just two weeks after returning from Haiti to my home in Houston, I found myself in the middle of another disaster zone caused by Hurricane Harvey. While my own home was spared, many in my community were devastated. As members of my church began to respond to the needs around us I realized some of the lessons of dealing with disasters.
