United Cajun Navy is launching our 2021 Cajun Navy Drive. Come help Cajun Navy provide much needed civilian support in times of disasters. Responding with Search and Rescue, Generators, Supplies, and much more in 2021.
United Cajun Navy is attempting to locate any space heaters in Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi. The posted map shows the extremely dangerous freezing temperatures currently being experienced across those states. Factor this with the over 2 Million residents that currently do not have power its a very serious situation. United Cajun Navy has generators and gasoline but lacks the heaters to deploy for those in need. IF you have a heater that you can offer please let us know by by our website: www.TheCajunNavy.org or our Facebook www.Facebook.com/UnitedCajunNavy
All funds received 2/15 through 2/18 will go towards Amazon Prime orders for Blankets and Heaters for this Winter Emergency.
Operation Jolo, WV
Through the tunnels of West Virginia UCN makes a journey unlike no other.
Jolo, WV residing in McDowell County is plagued with high unemployment after the decline of the coal industry, McDowell County’s population has dwindled from nearly 100,000 in 1950 to around 19,000 today. The government deems McDowell County to be the poorest in the nation, as well as the place with the lowest life expectancy due to high smoking and obesity rates. In the past 15 years, the opioid epidemic in this region has killed more people than anywhere else in the nation, except in neighboring Wyoming County.
We provided a glimmer of hope providing the children, who most are raised by grandparents and living in places you would only see in 3rd world countries... new winter jackets and pants, water, tarps, tools and a few pairs of work gloves. Seeing first hand the immediate attention this area needs, United Cajun Navy will be going back with additional supplies.
I can not put into words the feelings and thoughts while UCN was on the ground. There is no cellular service for miles the area is surrounded by mountains the size of sky scrapers. Shacks in the side of the hills and the bottom of the ravines are the only signs of life. It was asked why residents do not move out of the area and what we where told just made my wife tear up.. Most of the population has the education of 3rd graders with many not having the ability to read. Where would they be able to go? For most of the residents this is life. Our plans for this in 2021 will be to provide food, refurbished computers, and additional building supplies to the Family Worship Center ran by Pastor Charlie Rose.
