Hurricane Irma Response

Hurricane Irma is now one of the strongest and most sustained hurricanes in history, already leveling some islands in the Caribbean and causing destruction across many others. The storm then struck Florida as a Category 4 hurricane, the first time in over 100 years that two Category 4 hurricanes have made landfall in the U.S. in the same hurricane season.

We must act now to help.

Just two weeks after Hurricane Harvey caused catastrophic flooding in the U.S., Hurricane Irma tore a destructive path across the Caribbean, then along the north side of Haiti and eventually made landfall in southern Florida on Sunday, September 10.

Dozens have already lost their lives and thousands have lost their homes and livelihoods. In the areas impacted, it will likely be months—or even years—before residents can fully recover.

But we can help speed that recovery.

World Relief is committed to delivering immediate aid and ongoing assistance to victims in multiple impacted areas:

  • In the Caribbean, we are working to identify partners delivering aid in the affected islands.
  • In Haiti, our World Relief Haiti team will soon be assessing needs and identifying churches through which we can partner to deliver help.
  • In the U.S., we will be giving funds directly to churches that are responding to the crisis, as we are also doing with Hurricane Harvey.

Join us in making a difference in the lives of those who have lost so much.


Your giving ensures sustainability to our work in some of the most vulnerable places in the world. Contributions will be used for the purpose specified in this campaign. If in the judgment of World Relief such purpose becomes impossible, impractical, unnecessary, or undesirable, World Relief will use contributions for its general purposes.
