Mission Statement

International Relief and Development’s mission is to reduce the suffering of the world’s most vulnerable groups and provide tools and resources needed to increase their self-sufficiency.

Description

Almost 5 years after Hurricane Katrina, we still have clients that need to have their homes either rebuilt or repaired. We have funding for the materials to complete these projects, but we need manpower to finish the construction work. We would expect that the work performed by volunteer teams will allow clients to return to their homes repaired and rebuilt for safe, secure, and sanitary permanent living.

Additionally, we are starting a "10 by 5" campaign to complete 5 homes between now and the 5 year Anniversary. We are aiming to finish repairing 10 homes, 1 home a week during the 10 weeks leading up to the anniversary, August 29, 2010.
