More than a dozen HOPE medical volunteers are on the ground in Texas providing health services to victims of Hurricane Harvey. HOPE’s team of physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists and mental health professionals are providing a range of health services around the Houston area.

Hurricane Harvey Volunteer Response

Some care is as simple as providing critical tetanus shots to protect people as they prepare to go back to their flood-damaged homes.

HOPE’s team is also providing much-needed psychosocial support from experts experienced in disaster situations.

(Watch a video of volunteer Dr. Nancy Miller, as she speaks about the importance of incorporating mental health counseling into over health care following disasters.)

Project HOPE has also delivered 500 hygiene kits for people impacted by Harvey and an additional 500 kits are on the way.

As Project HOPE continues to widen its response to the health care consequences of Hurricane Harvey, we are also tracking Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 hurricane that has already battered parts of the Caribbean and could hit the continental U.S. this weekend. Thank you for your continued support as we monitor the health impact of these storms and continue to respond where the need is greatest.
