About MNA Disaster Response
Mission to North America (MNA) provides support to PCA churches in disaster-affected communities through a network of staff and volunteer damage assessment teams, first response teams, site managers, and key leaders. MNA recruits and mobilizes volunteers, receives and distributes supplies and equipment, brings awareness of specific needs, channels recovery funds, focuses prayer and provides spiritual encouragement to our PCA family and their communities.
About Hurricane Harvey & Irma
We all have heard the names Harvey and Irma at this point. These two storms have certainly made names for themselves: both incredibly destructive, taking lives and disrupting many:
MNA is in full response mode in TX following Hurricane Harvey’s impact. Now we are assessing Hurricane Irma’s destruction in FL, GA, AL, TN, and SC. Although some areas are still underwater, and/or without power, early reports are that we have many opportunities to assist PCA communities rocked by this second, wide-spread disaster while still ramping up our response in TX.
MNA Disaster Response has staff and key leaders on the ground checking in with our congregations which number more than 160. Obviously it will take some time to determine the needs for each church family and how best we can help in the Name of Christ. MNA works through a network of relief providers coming alongside local PCA churches and mission organizations in the affected areas. Funding is needed for mobilization of assessment teams, setting up short-term and long-term recovery sites that will host volunteers, supplies and equipment purchases, the transportation of urgently needed relief supplies, and financial grants for stabilization of homes belonging to our members and church physical plants. MNA also channels funds to our congregations to assist non-affiliated (non-PCA) storm-impacted families in desperate need through Mercy Ministry.
Please prayerfully consider a generous donation to equip your disaster response ministry to respond well to this new disaster.
