BAYOU VISTA, La.—Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief (DR) is serving Hurricane Ida victims in Bayou Vista, La., which is 90 miles west of New Orleans and 40 miles west of Houma, La., one of the hardest-hit areas from the hurricane.
DR’s Incident Command team is set up at Bayou Vista Baptist Church. More than 40 trained volunteers will be serving through DR’s feeding units and recovery teams. Don Williams, state DR director, reported the feeding units will be producing 10,000 meals a day for the community.
A group of DR volunteers left this morning, Sept. 3, from the DR Training Facility in Okarche.
“Oklahoma Baptists are ready to respond when disaster strikes, and these volunteers will be providing help, healing and hope to these communities and individuals in Louisiana,” Williams said.
Williams reported DR will be sending volunteers to Louisiana on a weekly basis, relieving crews working in the affected areas.
