Helping the Victims of Hurricane Katrina.

CIC News
Published: September 1, 2005

On the days leading up to Monday August 29 Hurricane Katrina had set her vengeful eye on America's Gulf Coast and as she clawed her way inland the people aligned in her path were anticipating the very worst, and rightfully so.

Thousands of people eventually made it out with only precious hours to spare before the "big wind" hit, and yet countless others were left to defend themselves against nature's fury with little more than hope and a prayer to save them. When all was said and done Hurricane Katrina left total devastation in her wake and had displaced hundreds of thousands of Americans from their homes and their very lives.

Red Cross"Natural Disaster" as a term used to describe this massive catastrophic event hitherto unseen in modern America seems strangely inept when one begins to describe the fallout. The enormous task of rebuilding the places and lives of the people that were terribly affected by this cataclysm will have billions upon billions poured into the relief and reconstruction effort. Years will come to pass before America's Gulf Coast will see some semblance of its former self re-emerge from the water-logged ruins.

Donate to the American Red Cross Katrina Fund

Millions of people worldwide opened their hearts to the victims of Katrina donating whatever they could to the disaster relief effort that is still underway. Victims are now scattered across the US and even as far as Canada as they seek refuge from the aftermath of the storm. Our hearts and thoughts go out to all these people in their time of need.
