HHI Responds to Hurricane Harvey, Irma & Maria

By

HHI has medical teams in Texas and Puerto Rico, responding to victims of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Maria. Upon arrival in Puerto Rico, the teams immediately traveled into the mountains, to some of the hardest hit and most remote locations. Many towns had not seen any aid workers until Heart to Heart International volunteers arrived. These teams have been providing medical care in hospitals, clinics, shelters and in homes of people unable to leave.
