Hurricane Dorian left behind a tragic scene of broken homes, vehicles, and hearts after gusting winds damaged the beautiful island.

The Billy Graham Rapid Response Team (RRT) and Samaritan's Purse volunteers are reaching out to Prince Edward Island hurricane victims, providing emotional support, spiritual support, and more.

Some of those suffering from this natural disaster, are elderly homeowners attempting to put the pieces of their lives back together. Residents in Summerside, Kensington, and Cavendish felt the bulk of the disaster, but, with the help of the RRT chaplains and volunteers, properties are getting cleaned and damaged homes are being prepped for repairs.

“We are praying for the people of PEI, and our chaplains are providing Christ’s compassion, care, and love to residents and emergency responders,” says Merle Doherty, manager of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association of Canada’s RRT chaplains.

"Many people here are facing a lot of turmoil. the chaplains can play an important role in helping them," said Kensington Mayor Rowan Caseley. 

The Billy Graham association sent its Mobile Ministry Center along with the RRT chaplains, to help those on the ground. The center is a large specially equipped truck that offers hurricane victims and emergency responders a quiet place for rest, and comfort. The chaplains and the center are beacons of hope for the community, reminding them that help is available.

People are receiving the "support, encouragement, and prayer that many of them desperately need," says Doherty.
