FOREST, Va., Sept. 29, 2022—In the aftermath of the devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Ian on the Gulf Coast of Florida and in Cuba this week, Christian humanitarian organization World Help is providing aid through essential supplies. Ian, which slammed into Florida as a Category 4 hurricane, left behind extensive flooding, damage, and displacement.

World Help is partnering with local churches and relief organizations to provide critical supplies like food, fresh water, and hygiene items to people in the areas most affected by the storm. In addition, World Help’s regional liaison to Latin America will travel to Cuba this week to work with the organization’s local partners to assess areas of additional need.

“Hurricane Ian was a storm of great proportions, and for those in Florida and Cuba left in its wake, it will be a long recovery,” said World Help President Noel Brewer Yeatts. “Thanks to the generosity of others, we are able to provide essential items for victims of the hurricane, and we are praying for everyone affected.”

World Help is currently accepting donations specifically to help those impacted by Hurricane Ian in both Florida and Cuba. World Help is providing financial assistance to a partner in Cuba to quickly provide food, water, building materials and more instead of shipping materials.
