Disaster Preparedness

Matthew 25’s disaster preparedness staff is constantly monitoring disasters and humanitarian situations both domestically and internationally. Because we have active partners or contacts located in most parts of the world, we have access to real-time information and are able to include that constantly evolving information in our ongoing assessment process. Matthew 25: Ministries provides critical rapid response necessities and services to help maintain health, hygiene and connectivity as well as long-term relief, recovery and rebuilding support to areas suffering from catastrophic disasters.

Matthew 25: Ministries’ core focus during disasters is moving large amounts of critically-needed aid into the affected area for distribution through partner organizations. In addition to providing truckloads of aid to shelters and distribution centers, Matthew 25’s Disaster Response team provides essential services and delivers products directly into affected neighborhoods in order to help those who cannot evacuate, as well as those who are returning to their homes to begin the recovery process. As part of our commitment to disaster relief, Matthew 25 also provides essential resource information for people who have been impacted by a disaster via our Disaster Relief Resource Map
