Last week, the east of the United States along the Florida panhandle was heavily battered by a category four hurricane.
USA experienced a fiercest of storms as Hurricane Michael ravaged eastern parts of the country, leaving many missing as well as others severely affected, without food or shelter.
The hurricane destroyed many of the surrounding areas with winds reaching up to 155mph (249 km/h). Relief operations began immediately after the hurricane.
Humanity First, in association with the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat USA, immediately set out with members driving from Atlanta all the way down to Panama City in Florida with relief supplies to assist those that had been affected. The Humanity First volunteers worked alongside the National Guard of the United States to distribute these supplies to those most in need.
