World Vision Readies National Response to Hurricane Sandy

From World Vision:

With Hurricane Sandy forecasted to impact much of the greater New York City area by early next week, World Vision is preparing to respond along the East Coast to hundreds of children and families impacted by the storm.  At the organization’s New York City and Washington, DC sites, pre-positioned relief supplies, including cleaning supplies, personal hygiene items and emergency food kits, are being readied for immediate delivery. Meantime, staff at World Vision’s National  Disaster Headquarters near Dallas, Texas are preparing to send additional relief supplies to New York City next week to provide teams with back-up supplies and support.

“Hurricane Sandy could be one of the most devastating storms we have responded to in decades,” said Phyllis Freeman, World Vision’s Domestic Disaster Director. “We are asking our supporters to pray that the impact isn’t as severe as some forecasters are predicting but World Vision is prepared to respond if we do see the worst.”
