Disasters happen all around the world, and we, in New Orleans area are not exempt from these events.

The Johns Hopkins and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies shared their own definition. “The word disaster implies a sudden overwhelming and unforeseen event.”

At the household level, a disaster could result in a major illness, death, a substantial economic or social misfortune.

At the community level, it could be a flood, a fire, a collapse of buildings in an earthquake, the destruction of livelihoods, an epidemic or displacement through conflict.

When occurring at the district or provincial level, many people can be affected.”

What is Natural Disaster Assistance Work?

According to The Center for High Impact Philanthropy, there were an average of 127 disasters that occurred in the US from 2006 to 2015.

These occurrences have risen and doubled with the recent events.

All disasters have caused significant disruptions in the lives of the affected individuals.

When faced with a disaster, it would be tremendously hard to recover from damages.

Disaster relief is an action given to assist and help those affected by disasters.

US Legal says that disaster relief “includes humanitarian services and transportation, food, clothing, medicine, beds and bedding, temporary shelter and housing, medical and technical personnel, and repairs to essential services.”

How Can You Help With Disaster Relief

There are many ways that you can help.

We’ve listed some simple and effective ways to contribute to disaster relief and along with some of disaster relief companies.

Reach Out To Reputable Disaster Aid Organizations And Donate What You Can

When we hear about disasters, we cannot help but feel helpless ourselves.

However, this does not mean that there is nothing that you can do. Extending help, by means of donation, can be a great help to those in need.

One of the most effective ways to help is to donate cash to disaster relief organizations.

This will ensure that your donation reaches its designated place and individuals who need it the most. Donating cash also increases the accuracy of help provided to all areas.

A problem that local and national responders encounter is making sure relief operations are efficient.

Some areas get too much help or goods needed which in turn deprives other vulnerable areas.

This is why donating cash is more effective. Responders have more flexibility and are able to direct the flow of help provided.

Here are some organizations that you can get in touch with for donations:

  • New Orleans – Headwaters Relief Organization – Headwaters’ began as a grassroots volunteer effort providing disaster aid in 2005 in response to Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans’ Ninth Ward. The resource center offers free counseling, referral to other resources if needed and community education to those who might not otherwise have access to mental health support.

  • Greater New Orleans, Inc. – The organization has created a $23 million housing recovery fund and brought more than 9,000 families home in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. You can make a donation or become an ambassador to help make a difference in the community and assist on any emergencies. 
  • Opulent Philanthropy Inc.– A non-profit disaster relief organization that aims to help individuals and families across the United States. 
  • The Humane Society of the United States’ Disaster Relief Fund – Focuses on helping pets who got separated from their owners during an earthquake, storm, hurricane, and fires.
  • The American Red Cross – The universal go-to for disaster help. They also provide emergency resources and training helping families and individuals prepare for any disaster.
