Convoy of Hope spokesman Ethan Forhetz tells AFN the ministry is standing with tractor-trailers loaded with food, water, hygiene kits, and baby supplies, once Hurricane Ian passes.
“Things like that,” he says, “that are just the basic part of life that people need to survive, to get through.”
Forhetz said volunteers began arriving at Convoy’s headquarters in Missouri as soon as weather forecasters announced Florida was in the storm’s path after it slammed into Cuba. Those volunteers prepared more than 10,000 bags of groceries.
“That's just the start,” he tells AFN.
Asked how long Convoy of Hope will remain in Florida and help, the spokesman says as long as it takes until the storm-battered communities are restored.
