Our sincere prayers to the families affected by the IDA Hurricane.
Hurricane Ida Relief Service Project – November 2021
By Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s Grace and Blessings, we are blessed with a much-needed opportunity to serve the brothers and sisters in Louisiana, USA.
A category 4 Hurricane Ida lashed and ravaged Louisiana on Sunday, August 29, 2021 making landfall near Port Fourchon with ferocious winds of 150 mph. Ida then churned inland, bringing catastrophic winds, heavy rainfall, and tornadoes, along with flash and urban flooding along the coasts of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama.
Even after three months, many communities along the Louisiana state’s southeastern coast (Barataria, Dulac, Grand Isle, Houma, Ironton, Lafitte, and Port Fourchon) are still suffering from the devastation of the infrastructure. The hardest-hit communities are in critical need of supplies including food, clean water, hygiene items, toiletries, clothing, tents, generators, flashlights, cleaning items, construction tools and materials, etc.
The SSSGC Disaster Relief Team, in coordination with the Sai Center of Sugarland, TX surveyed the impacted areas and identified specific needs of the effected communities. By Swami’s Grace, two local churches in Dulac, LA have been selected as partners in the divine mission of rendering selfless service to the victims of the hurricane.
The relief supplies can be shipped directly from Amazon or Walmart to either of the addresses below:
(1) Anchor Four Square Church,
6741 Grand Caillou Road,
Dulac, Louisiana 70353.
Attn: Pastor Norbert Billiot
(2) Clanton Chapel United Methodist Church,
100 Coast Guard Road,
