'Their Eyes Were Full of Tears': How Operation Blessing is Helping Harvey Victims

'Their Eyes Were Full of Tears': How Operation Blessing is Helping Harvey Victims Read Transcript

CBN's Operation Blessing is in Texas.

They've been there for days helping

residents who were hit by Hurricane Harvey.

They're handing out food and water,

but they say the work is nowhere near done.

Take a look.

TALIA WISE: CBN's Operation Blessing

has been on the ground in Texas since before Hurricane Harvey

made landfall.

Now the organization is working in several communities

across southern Texas, including the community of Taft.

We have a semi truck that's arriving tomorrow

to help that community.

They're still without power, without potable water.

There's a grocery store 20 minutes away from them,

but the shelves are empty.

And so Operation Blessing is moving

into communities like that.

TALIA WISE: OB was one of the first organizations

to step up and donate to a mega shelter in Dallas that

is helping stranded families.

Most of the people left their homes

with nothing, just their clothing, their children,

their pets.

And so when we ask them what they need the most,

it's going to be what their children need the most.

And so we gave them the pack-and-plays

that Operation Blessing has given to us.

TALIA WISE: From Dallas to Taft and Rockport, Texas,

Operation Blessing is giving out food and water supplies.

And you can see the look of relief on people's faces

as they get help.

But this disaster is far from over.

The threat of a second hurricane looms,

as Harvey is expected to gain strength over the Gulf Coast.

Operation Blessing is asking you for prayer and a donation

to help them help Texas.
