The Merciful End to the 2018 Hurricane Season

The 2018 Atlantic hurricane season mercifully ended today.

Hopefully you were not among those severely impacted by the most destructive storms - Michael and Florence.  However, millions were left homeless or without power for weeks. Many may never return home.

Can you imagine losing everything? What if you couldn’t get to a pharmacy for a critically-needed prescription? Or to a store for basic health supplies? The fear and loss many residents experienced before, during, and after these events is unfathomable.

However, because of your support of MAP International, many of them now know someone cares about their well-being, someone they have never met. It is because of you, MAP was able to apply its years of experience in disaster relief and provide a ray of hope amidst such despair.

Miracles Big and Small After Hurricane Michael

Hurricane Michael roared across the Florida panhandle leaving behind a swath of destruction of historic proportions. The death toll has grown to 19, and more than 435,000 homes are still without power. First responders are still assessing the damage in many communities.

Panama City Beach had never experienced a storm as powerful as Michael. The hurricane left the city in shambles. Both local hospitals were severely damaged. Those who did not evacuate or left a car behind lost their vehicle when Michael slammed ashore. Their ability to reach a physician, or a pharmacy to get medication has been hampered. Could you imagine not being able to pick up a critically-needed prescription?
