Not just any portal in a storm
Natural disasters randomly destroy and create havoc whenever and wherever, without a concern for human life and activity. When huge and devastating events occur, there’s frustratingly little mortals can do but hunker down and hope for the best.
However, it’s during the aftermath when the best of humankind appears—when people come to the aid of their family, friends, neighbors, and strangers. In these times, most everyone focuses on what’s important: saving lives and property, and helping victims get back on their feet again.
In the late summer of 2017, when Hurricane Harvey slammed into Corpus Christi, Houston, and Beaumont, Texas and the surrounding areas, some lost their lives, many suffered physical injuries, and thousands experienced billions of dollars in damages to their property and personal possessions.
Hurricane Harvey relief assistance
Clearly, relief assistance was desperately needed. CHRISTUS Health answered the call. CHRISTUS Health is a healthcare organization with 45,000 employees spread across eight U.S. regions as well as Latin America. It has hospitals throughout Texas and Louisiana, so the organization’s leaders knew many employees as well as their patients and patients’ families were going to need assistance.
