Louisiana Flood Response

International Relief Teams is sending volunteer teams to Louisiana to repair damaged homes for victims who cannot recover on their own. IRT has more than 28 years of experience in assisting victims of disasters, both nationally and internationally. Disaster recovery is a long-term process, and IRT prides itself on supporting affected communities even after the cameras leave. In the US, IRT worked for four years in some of the hardest hit areas of New Jersey after Superstorm Sandy rebuilding nearly 50 homes. After Hurricane Katrina (2005), IRT deployed teams every other month to the Mississippi coast through March 2012, rebuilding and repairing 219 homes.
