South Louisiana needs our help

At least 40,000 homes were damaged and 11 people have been killed during the flooding, leaving thousands stranded without homes or basic necessitates.

Around 11,000 people remain in emergency shelters, days after the deluge began, according to CNN.

In an effort to lend a hand to those suffering from the historic flooding, local organizations and churches have begun to collecting donations.

Basic necessities, such as water, blankets and medical supplies, are the most needed, although clothes, diapers and hygiene items are also on the list.

Unfortunately, we live in the throw away society created by “open trade deals” instituted by both Republican and Democratic administrations. 
We sent our manufacturing overseas, or to Central and South America, thus causing the problem of fewer manufacturing jobs in the United States.
