Hurricane Irene damage in Eastern NC

RAFI-USA field staff Joe Schroeder and Julius Tillery traveled across eastern NC on Tuesday Aug. 30, to bring water and food to farmers and people in need from Hurricane Irene. Below are some pictures of the damage that affected this area. If you can be of any assistance to anyone of the eastern North Carolina area affected by Hurricane Irene, please don’t be shy to help. There are many people still without electricity in this area, and with days without refrigeration and some water supplies damaged, people of these rural areas will truly appreciate any help.
RAFI-USA staff are currently working remotely. As we plan for how COVID-19 will change both how we do our work, and what work needs to be done, please know that we are still here. Our Farmer Hotline (866-586-6746) will operate from Monday-Saturday from 9am to 6pm. Stay tuned for more updates and information.
