Bayou Liberty Relief

This website once served as a bulletin board for Bayou Liberty Relief (Hurricane Katrina Relief Non-Profit) organization. The camp was located in Slidell Louisiana, and temporarily housed individual volunteers and formal groups who traveled to the Hurricane zone to assist in any way they could. The camp is now closed due to mainly the lack of qualified volunteers to perform the work, and the huge amount of work that remained. There is an amount of time after a disaster when you can actually make a difference. In time in turns into bureaucracy and red tape and it is very difficult to actually get anything accomplished. Funding for the organization was held by IHC (International Humanities Center). As far as we can tell the administrators absconded with the remaining funds and left the country.
