USK Students to Assist Flood Victims in West Virginia

On May 20, USK students will depart for West Virginia sites that were damaged by flooding and are currently receiving assistance from International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC). 

IOCC’s Orthodox Home Build teams support long-term recovery after disasters because communities affected by these catastrophes often face great need long after the crisis has passed.

Work usually starts 6-12 months after a disaster, and IOCC teams sometimes keep coming back for years, depending on the need. These home build teams are often in partnership with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity or Disaster Recovery Support Initiative (DRSI).
