Faith-Based Disaster Response

Friday, May 13, 2011 View Comments Comments (0)
Shortly after the April tornado outbreak that hit the South, Alabama in particular, with such devastation, The New York Times ran an article highlighting faith-based response to natural disasters. Giving attention particularly to the Southern Baptist disaster relief organization, the article said, “Nearly 95,000 Baptists across the country are trained to handle disasters like hurricanes and floods. After the Red Cross and the Salvation Army, the Baptist group is the biggest disaster relief organization in the country.”

The Web, of course, is an especially useful tool for organizing disaster relief provided by faith-based groups. For example, the Alabama Baptist Convention State Board of Missions set up a page with updates and ways to help. Many others have done likewise.
