September 2016 – Eight Days of Hope, a Mississippi-based relief ministry, will lead a rebuilding effort in South Carolina’s Georgetown and Williamsburg counties October 8-15. The project will help families who still await relief after last October’s flooding when a hurricane inflicted $12 billion dollars worth of damage.
“They are looking for help, for hope,” said EDOH president Steve Tybor. EDOH is a nonprofit, faith-based organization committed to rebuilding damaged homes of those affected by natural disasters. Since EDOH was organized in 2005, almost 17,000 volunteers have helped rebuild or restore 1,717 homes in Alabama, Iowa, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
“We know Eight Days of Hope is a trustworthy ministry and they carry the gospel wherever they go,” said AFA president Tim Wildmon.
EDOH is an all-volunteer agency, and Tybor expects more than 2,500 to register (eightdaysofhope.com) and come to South Carolina.
