The North Carolina-based international relief organization Samaritan’s Purse is deploying a disaster response team along with a tractor-trailer stocked with tools and emergency supplies to southern Wisconsin. Homeowners in three counties along the Fox River—Kenosha, Racine and Walworth—are reeling from severe flooding caused by historic rainfall in the area.

The organization’s staff has reached out to local authorities and homeowners in these hard-hit areas and is mobilizing volunteers to help families clean out their flood-damaged homes. Teams will tear out damaged drywall, remove flooring, clear debris and spray chemicals designed to stop mold growth.

“Hundreds of Wisconsin families have been affected by these historic floods,” said Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse. “We want to share the hope of Jesus Christ with them by letting them know they are not alone and helping them start to get back on their feet after this devastating disaster.”

The tractor-trailer, one of the organization’s Disaster Relief Units, arrived today stocked with heavy-duty tarps, generators and other tools that will aid in the cleanup efforts. This unit and the volunteer teams, based at Mt. Zion Christian Church in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, Samaritan’s Purse’s partner church for the response effort.

Not to mention, Chaplains from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s Rapid Response Team are also helping flood victims in Wisconsin. They will be working alongside Samaritan’s Purse to provide emotional and spiritual encouragement.

Samaritan’s Purse has helped more than 29,000 families in 35 U.S. states following floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, fires and ice storms. Recently the organization provided aid to victims of tornadoes in Mississippi, and floods in Missouri and Louisiana.

Let keep the victims and the disaster relief teams in your prayers. Please also keep all of those also effected by this flooding and else where in your prayers too.
